The National Conference began on Monday, March 17, at the National Judiciary Institute in Abuja.
The confab that will last for three months and cost around N7bn ($42mln) is meant to provide a platform for Nigerians to discuss issues of common concern.
These issues that are likely to be at the top of the agenda are Islamist-linked violence in the north, corruption, a more fair distribution of oil wealth, and the effectiveness of the country’s political structure.
