National Conference Gets 6 Weeks Extension!


The ongoing National Conference which commenced on March 17 and was to last for three months till June 19 has been extended by six weeks. As such, the conference will now end on July 31.
The notice of the extension was contained in the work plan released to delegates on Wednesday.
“What I know is that the period for the committees to complete their work has been extended to May 15,” James Akpandem, a spokesman for the National Conference said when he was asked about the extension.
There had been speculations that the leadership of the conference would seek extension from the federal government after it met with leaders of its 20 Standing Committees on Monday.
Though the standing committees were expected to send their report to the conference leadership by Wednesday, it is widely believed that many of them would seek extension.
Meanwhile, the extension of the conference would translate to additional remuneration for the delegates. Going by the calculation that each member takes about N 3 million monthly, each of them will have about N 4.5 million more than the N9 million that should have accrued to them if the conference had ended on June 19.
