The Leader of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Pa Rueben Fasoranti has questioned President Muhammadu Buhari’s stand towards implementing the recommendations of the report of the National Conference organised by the ex-President Dr. Goodluck Jonathan.
Speaking at a media briefing in Akure, Ondo State capital, he said the conference, which the All Progressives Congress opposed, formed the blueprint for the common good of Nigerians.
He said; “The reason we supported Jonathan, of course, was because he agreed to carry out the decisions of the National Conference. The present government is not working towards that and when the time comes, we shall speak again. Unless we do that, Nigeria will not settle. That is, the recommendations of the confab.
“Restructuring and many other things in the recommendations – so much money was spent on them. And it will be a shame; in fact, it will be a disaster if the report of the confab is dumped somewhere.
“I am sure people will continue to talk until something is done. Although, the APC didn’t like it. The party didn’t attend but the recommendations formed the blueprint for future Nigeria.”
Urging President Buhari to formally establish his cabinet without further delay, the statesman said:
“I think the President should sit down and have a package. He is just picking people here and there. He did not have time to settle down for governance yet and the time is flying.
“Let him constitute his cabinet and start working. As it is now, Buhari is still behaving like a military dictator – just picking on people. He should sit down for work. His cabinet has not met. He is running a one-man show now, but let us give him some time.”
