Kukah spoke to journalists ahead of the Fixing Nigeria Initiative event, slated for June 16, 2016 in Abuja, aimed at strengthening Nigeria’s governance system and addressing critical leadership challenges confronting the nation.
He contended that the resolutions and recommendations inherent in the National Conference Report were sacrosanct in engendering a sustainable and peaceful nation devoid of rancor, and therefore, could not be dismissed or thrown away to the garbage hip of history.
The Bishop, who was Co-Secretary of the National Conference, took time to explain the imperatives of the 2014 National Conference Report, arguing that “the president cannot throw it (report) away; archives are archives. Thank God he did not say he will throw it into the dustbin.
“We are not in a military regime. The president cannot wake up and say the National Assembly should be closed. A lot of the powers have been taken from the President,” he added.
Kukah’s position came on the heels of comments credited to President Buhari where he was quoted to have stated that “I haven’t even bothered to read it or ask for a briefing on it, and I want it to go into the so-called archives.”
