TVC E, POLITICS – Vice presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change in the 2011 election, Tunde Bakare has called on President Mohammadu Buhari to adopt the report of the 2014 National Conference.
Speaking on the state of the nation, Bakare who is also the presiding Pastor of The Latter Rain Assembly, said Nigeria is a nation in transition.
Bakare reiterated that 2016 is the year when Nigeria begins to build her structures towards a new political order characterized by true and viable federalism.
He also called for the resignation of the governor of the Central Bank, Godwin Emefiele.
“A truly federal state with such powers vested exclusively on the Federal Government as are necessary to firmly and prosperously knit together the federating units upon which residual powers shall be vested.
“That promise of the true federalism is contained in Article 14 of the Nigerian Charter for National Reconciliation and Integration, which was unanimously adopted and signed by the delegates to the 2014 National Conference, including myself, as the basis of our union.
“The All Progressives Congress (APC) may have refused to participate in the 2014 National Conference, but the report of that conference is completely in tandem with the promise of the APC Manifesto. The APC Manifesto and the report of the 2014 National Conference are a tag team in waiting, not a thesis and antithesis. Just as this government adopted the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS), the Government Integrated Financial Management Information System (GIFMIS) and the Treasury Single Account (TSA), which were conceived by the Goodluck Jonathan administration, the Buhari-led government should embrace the report of the 2014 National Conference,” Bakare said.
