The Southern Senators’ Forum has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to convene a meeting of the leadership of the National Assembly, state houses of assembly and governors.
The forum, according to the News Agency of Nigeria, said the proposed meeting should be given the mandate to brainstorm and start the process of implementing the 2014 National Conference report.
The Chairman of the forum, Senator Hope Uzodinma, read the communiqué which contained the group’s position at the end of its retreat held in Calabar, the Cross River State capital, on Saturday.
The communiqué noted that the forum also resolved that its members would liaise with their northern colleagues in the National Assembly to start a legislative process that would ensure the implementation of the report. 

It also said the group urged the leadership of the National Assembly to bring up the report for consideration.
It read in part, “After the presentation of papers, contributions and general brainstorming, it was resolved that Nigeria and Nigerians have come a long way.
“As such, it has become imperative and in the interest of all, to live together as one united family under one indivisible and indissoluble country with justice, equity and fairness.
“While the unity of Nigeria should not and cannot be compromised under any circumstance, it has become apparent that the foundation upon which Nigeria was built at independence in 1960 has been eroded.
“There is a need to return to the original dream of true federalism which was a product of negotiation, compromise and accommodation,’’ he said.
The retreat witnessed presentation of papers from prominent Nigerians on various subject matters, including “Sustaining National Unity in a restructured Nigeria’’. (NAN)
