fg-PresidencyPresident Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday said that the report of the National Conference would be presented to the next National Assembly.

Jonathan gave the assurance at the flag-off the PDP presidential election campaign at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos, ahead of the February election.

He said that the executive arm of the government did not want to present the report to the current assembly because of some issues in the assembly.

The President said that his administration approved the conference with the aim of moving Nigeria forward and would want the report to be well applied.

He said that the general elections were about the young people.

” We have just introduced our governorship candidates, and you see their age brackets.

“I directed INEC yesterday to ensure that every eligible voter must vote, and I mean it.

“We put voter’s card in place. This administration is relevant to Nigerians,’’ he said.

The President said that Nigeria was for the youth, and urged the youth to defend the country.

On security, Jonathan faulted those saying that the military was ill-equipped.

According to him, no country equips its military overnight.

“They refused to build the capacity over the years before we even came into power and instigated crisis.

“Now, they try to blame it on this administration.

Jonathan apologised to federal civil servants for delayed December salary.

He blamed the delay on an attempt by some ministries and parastatals to divert funds made for salaries to pay allowances..(NAN).
