CONFAB ADOPTS 70 PERCENT VOTING PROCEDURE

After weeks of bickering, delegates of the National Conference have adopted 70 percent majority as the voting mode to be used to determine decisions.
The adoption by a consensus followed a motion for adoption by  Senator Iyorchia Ayu representing the Former Senators Forum which was seconded by Obong Victor Attah, former Governor of Akwa-Ibom.
The adoption means that more serious work can be done at the Conference which had been delayed by discussion over the contents of Order VI Rule 3 of the Procedure Rule which states that any question proposed for decision shall be determined by consensus and when that is not achievable by a three quarter of the delegates present  through voting.
 
Meanwhile at the session today, Pastor Tunde Bakare said the Conference is full of mutual suspicion based on regional and religious leanings. “Nigerians are expecting something different from this Conference. We are not a parallel government. We should have an open mind a think Nigeria” he said
Also, the Secretary of the Conference announced that the government has agreed to rent ten additional halls outside the
Conference venue to accommodate the committee sitting during the three weeks they will be meeting.
