As president inaugurates national confab committee Nwabueze opts out , Count Jigawa State out – Gov Lamido
Luminary, Professor Ben Nwabueze, on Sunday, declined the offer to serve on the national conference panel on health ground. The leader of The Patriots, however, welcomed the initiative, saying it was a bold step. In his letter to President Goodluck Jonathan, on Sunday, the octogenarian, a former education minister, requested the president to nominate another eminent lawyer, Chief Solomon Asemota, to replace him on the committee chaired by the former university don, Senator Femi Okunrounmu. In the letter to President Jonathan, said to have been written on behalf of “The Patriots,” Nwabueze, a staunch advocate of a Sovereign National Conference (SNC), congratulated him for taking an indisputable bold step towards ensuring that a national conference was convoked before 2015.
