The National Conference has resolved that any elected public office holder in the country who defected from his or her political party to another would automatically lose the seat.
Confab wants defecting office holders to lose seats
This resolution came as delegates at the conference also agreed with the recommendation of the Committee on Politics and Governance that Nigeria should adopt a true federal structure with the states operating as the federating units.
The conference proposed that elected public office holders who abandoned their parties midway for new ones were to lose their seats.
On practice of true federalism, it was agreed that the creation of local government areas can be done by the states, as they deem necessary.
