PRONACO may organize protests in Port Harcourt


PRONACO, the coalition of ethnic nationalities that are bent on the organization of a sovereign national conference may have decided to embark on a number of activities to shore up support for its position.

PRONACO, the coalition of ethnic nationalities that are bent on the organization of a sovereign national conference may have decided to embark on a number of activities to shore up support for its position.

Friday vehicles carrying posters which said the way forward lies in the adoption of the idea of a national sovereign conference appeared on streets of Port Harcourt.

The Telegraph made several attempts to reach Alhaji Asari Dokubo, a frontline member of the group which does not recognize the National Political Reform Conference for comments.

A voice that answered the phone said Asari was in a meeting.
By mid afternoon Friday, this publication heard that an event organized by PRONACO was taking place along Sani Abacha Way.

The President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo had said members of the group had every right to organize their own conference, but it was not clear as at press time if the police in Port Harcourt has given the green light.

Unconfirmed sources hint PRONACO leaders may have met in Abuja during the week to fine tune plans for their own activities which are coming even as many wonder if the confab put together by the president would ever reconvene, following the deadlock arising from the disagreement between the South and the core North over revenue sharing matters.

Asari told this publication in a recent interview yet to be published that if the hand-picked delegates could hold the administration's agenda to ransom, what PRONACO would do is better imagined.

Most of Friday, there were speculations that there might be a mighty clash should PRONACO elements decide to go ahead with their programme.
Those who feel this way say the Obasanjo administration has shown little tolerance for views that are opposed to his.

Monday, the confab is supposed to re-open and no one is sure if the deadlock between the North and the South-South has been resolved.
Asari insists the issue at stake is not revenue allocation and what should be considered fit for the mineral producing people.

He said what is at stake is the question of resource take over.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
