The implementation of the recommendations made at the 2014 National Delegate Conference has been identified as panacea to solving the myriads of problems including corruption confronting the country.

A legal luminary and former Chairman of Nigerian Bar Association, Awka chapter, Barr. Stanley Mbanaso, who made the submission at presentation of a book, entitled “Nigeria Core Values and National Development” written by Barr. Leonard Akaolisa, unequivocally told President Muhammadu Buhari that his gospel of ‘change’ and war against ‘corruption’ are unattainable as long as the reports of national confab, which according to him, addressed the imbalances in totality of the country’s unity, remained unimplemented.

Bar Mbanaso, who was the reviewer of the book, added the Nigeria Core Values and National Development gave an insight into what patriotism stands for and came to inevitable conclusion that since Nigeria belong to all; the citizenry must remain loyal and patriotic to her cause as it will make her less prone to avoidable disdain.

Contributing, the Wife of Anambra State Governor, Chief Mrs. Ebele Obiano, represented by one-Dr. Ify Mmadukasi, and the State Commissioner for Education, Prof. Kate Omenugha, represented by Ms Asumpta Ifenso stressed that the book sufficed at an appropriate time the country is yearning for a change, and enjoined Ndi Anambra and her residence to imbibe the spirit of punctuality and patriotism in all they do with a view to moving the state and the nation forward.
