By NBF News

The Rivers State Government has not jettisoned the report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which it received in 2009, an official has said.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the commission headed by Justice Kayode Eso, a retired Justice of the Supreme Court, was set up in 2008 and submitted its report to the state government in 2009.

The Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, told the News Agency of Nigeria on phone from New York on Tuesday that the government had been implementing aspects of the commission's report.

'There is a government White Paper on it. It is not as if government has jettisoned that report, no. If you noticed, government has been implementing aspects of that report little by little.'
