Eminent Nigerians say national confab a must

 .List gains of planned summit

NIGERIAN leaders, rooting for the convocation of a national conference, met in Lagos yesterday to draw attention to the obvious threats to the country’s stability.

They were unanimous on the critical need for the people to come together and agree on the ways they should be governed and live as a united nation.

The leaders, who were led by Prof. Ben Nwabueze (SAN); Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) leader, Chief Audu Ogbe; former Finance Minister, Chief Olu Falae; Alhaji Balarabe Abdulkadir Musa; Olorogun Felix Ibru; Prof. Pat Utomi; Tony Uranta, and former President of the Institute of Directors (IoD), Dr. Chike Nwanze, asserted that running away from the national parley, amounts to “postponing the evil day.”

One after the other, the leaders highlighted the benefits of the dialogue, insisting that its convocation would not lead to the break up of Nigeria but strengthen its unity.

From the mass turn up for the summit yesterday, it was clear that the organisers of the National Summit Group (NSG) may have miscalculated in using the small hall at Sheraton Hotel and Towers, Ikeja, Lagos, as the venue.
