Prof. Wole Solyinka Speaks on National Conference

"When you have a national conference, are you sending it back to the legislatures, whose very structure you are resolved to destroy? So, how can the legislators be the ones to decide the modalities, the validity and the results of the deliberations? It’s not rational. In principle, I am for a National Conference, but my time, our time, on it, should not be wasted if the results are going to be sent to the National Assembly. What I believe in, about the structure of governance in this country is that it’s one that eliminates, absolutely destroys the present forms of legislative governance. So, for me, they should be part...the legislators should be represented in the National Conference, but they cannot be the deciding voice. Otherwise, lets all go home and forget all about it." ~ Prof. Wole Soyinka.
