Politics 'They want to Give Jonathan a 3rd Term'-Northern Delegates Reject National Confab Report



Northern Delegates Forum (NDF) an umbrella body of all delegates from the north irrespective of the primary organisation they are representing at the conference, has rejected a part of the draft final reports of the conference, which is called “New Draft Constitution 2014” ; Leadership Reported.

The NDF is accusing President Goodluck Jonathan and state governors of plotting to introduce a new constitution that will enable them enjoy a third term.

Addressing newsmen on the rejection, the NDF said, "From the foregoing, it is now abundantly clear that the conference has been infiltrated by fifth columnists whose goal is to subvert democratic processes and plunge the country into deeper but avoidable political crisis. We, northern delegates to the conference, wish to assure patriotic Nigerians, and all lovers of democracy, that we are neither privy to nor were we accessory to the emergence of the controversial ‘New Draft Constitution 2014’. We, therefore, unequivocally disown it, and emphatically dissociate ourselves from it.

"If not arrested, the third term agenda, as in the past (2005), is capable of plunging Nigeria into another circle of political chaos with potential of violence and anarchy.

"We, as pan-Nigerians and democrats, reject this agenda, in its entirety and call on stakeholders of all persuasions and institutions especially political parties, national and state houses of assembly, the media, civil society organisations, faith-based organisations, women, youths, etc., to reject same, and continue to champion and uphold democratic principles as enshrined in the constitution and other legitimate sources of lawmaking.”
