Speaking to the told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Thursday, April 2, Falae said the implementation of the report would help to revamp and re-launch the country.

"I want to advise Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari that he should see government as a continuum.

"I urge him that as soon as he is inaugurated and settle down to initiate action on the implementation of the report of the 2014 National Conference.
