NATIONAL CONFERENCE 2014

FINAL DRAFT OF CONFERENCE REPORT



INTRODUCTION 

AGITATIONS FOR NATIONAL CONFERENCE:  A HISTORICAL OVERVIEW

1.1     BACKGROUND

1.1.1  The Federal Republic Nigeria with a population of approximately 170 million, located in West Africa, has 36 States, 774 Local Government Areas and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. The country has had a history of national dialogue that has impacted on its constitutional and political development. In different phases of the 100 years of Nigeria as a nation from the amalgamation of the Northern and Southern Protectorates on January 1, 1914 to the convocation of a National Conference in March 2014, the nature, character and prospects of national conferences have been turning points in the history of the country. Each phase has had a defining moment as a result of the issues, demands, struggles and movements peculiar to it.

 

1.1.2  The history of constitutional and political development has shown that conferences for nation-building can be classified into three: -Constitutional, National (non-sovereign) and Sovereign. A constitutional conference is concerned with the sole aim of developing a constitutional framework or making proposals for constitutional changes within the existing constitutional framework. It has limited scope – Constitution making for the purpose of nation-building, through which the rules and principles of political pluralism, the role of the state, citizenship rights and duties, protection of fundamental human rights, etc., are defined 

 

1.1.3  A National Conference is a formal platform for dialogue by constituent units of the nation convened by the national government of a country to discuss issues or problems that inhibit national progress or challenge national cohesion. A National Conference is expected to proffer appropriate solutions that will assist in moving the nation forward. [FOR MORE SEE BELOW]
