National Conference Gets Four Weeks Extension

National Conference Gets Four Weeks Extension



The Federal Government yesterday extended the National Conference by four weeks to make up for lost time occasioned by many public holidays and the hosting of the World Economic Forum on Africa (WEFA).

With this, the conference will now end on July 17, 2014 and not on June 17, 2014 as was scheduled.

Chairman of the conference, Justice Idris Kutigi, announced this to delegates, saying that after a meeting with the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, the Federal Government agreed to grant the conference four weeks extension.

He revealed that the conference had applied for six weeks to enable it cover some lost grounds but was instead granted four weeks.

Deliberating on the issues, the conference secretariat suggested that sittings should also be held on Saturdays and Sundays.

However, delegates rejected the idea and suggested that two hours of lunch time should be reduced to one hour.

Again, that was not taken as the secretariat use the two hours lunch time to prepare minutes of proceedings of the conference.
