Yoruba Council of Elders (YCE), a socio cultural group has said it supports the call by the Nigerian Senate that the report of the 2014 National Conference held during ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s tenure be implemented.
The group made this known in a communique issued after a meeting of the Elders’ Council in Ibadan on Thursday.
Reading the communiqué, the Secretary General of the group Kunle Olajide said the call for true federalism was the only antidote to various problems confronting the country.
The YCE commends the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria for its resolution and we urge the executive to forward the report of the 2014 National Conference to the National Assembly as an Executive Bill.
The YCE urges all Nigerians to support the initiative of the National Assembly in its decision to work on the report.
The YCE also commends the efforts of the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo in holding consultation with the leaders and elders of the six zones of the country. We assure him of our support.
