A delegate to the National Conference on Wednesday, warned that any attempt by the leadership of the conference to infuse decisions not reached at plenary in the final report will be rejected.
The delegate, however, said there was no problem with the extension of the conference resumption date, to consider the final report to August 11, saying this would enable the leadership to prepare the necessary documents for all the members.
A northern delegate who preferred anonymity, told the Nigerian Tribune at the confidence that the north would not accept any report that fell short of the expectation.
Contrary to the earlier scheduled August 4 resumption, for the final adoption of the National Conference reports, announced by the Chairman, Justice Idris Kutigi, delegates would now resume on Monday, August 11.
Assistant Secretary Media and Communication to the Conference, Mr James Akpandem, who said the secretariat was yet to tidy up the final reports as a result of the Sallah public holidays, announced the extension of the resumption date by one week.
He said: “When the management of the National Conference adjourned plenary session on Monday, July 14, 2014, delegates were informed that they will reconvene on Monday, August 4 to certify the draft report of the conference to be assembled by the secretariat.
“Substantial work has been done on the various sections of the report as at now and we were hopeful that the entire draft will be ready by the scheduled date.
“However, because of the two-day public holiday declared for Monday and Tuesday, July 28 and 29 respectively, and the volume of the report, which various sections have to be integrated and produced at the same time, it is becoming obvious that 500 copies of the draft report in the required volumes may not be ready for distribution to all the delegates on Monday August 4, 2014.
