President Goodluck Jonathan has continued to deny the insinuation from Nigerians that the Federal Government induced National Conference is laden with Jonathan’s personal and private agenda. He was reported to have said that “Let me again repeat what I have been saying, that Goodluck Jonathan has no personal agenda in convening this national conference.” He stated this at the inauguration of the Conference at the National Judicial Institute.
Although he has tried in vain to convince Nigerians that the whole idea was motivated by the patriotic desire for a better and a greater nation, Nigerians are not entirely fooled into believing the presidential statement, as a dark cloud of suspicion is seen to have generally encompassed the skies of the National Conference, with not a few Nigerians strongly convinced that it is all part of a hideous ploy to execute a hidden parochial agenda. So how does this ploy play out and how does Jonathan benefit from this agenda? For answers to these posers and more read this revealing story in this edition.
