The Federal Government has granted a one-month extension to the on-going National Conference.
The conference chairman, retired Justice Idris Kutigi told delegates at plenary that the leadership of the conference had requested a six-week extension but was granted four weeks.
He urged delegates to be prepared to make more sacrifices, while requesting that sitting be held on Fridays and Saturdays.
The request was unanimously rejected by delegates who argued that the conference should employ other ways to arrive at decisions and gain more time for deliberation.
Delegates however agreed from now on to resume sitting by nine a.m instead of ten a m.
