The Speaker of the House of Representatives, FEMI GBAJABIAMILA, has urged state Houses of Assembly to consider and pass bills transmitted to them by the National Assembly in the ongoing review of the 1999 Constitution.
GBAJABIAMILA made the appeal in his remarks at the opening of plenary earlier today after the National Assembly returned from its two-month annual break.
You would recall that the National Assembly had on the 1st of March voted on the 68 amendments recommended by the Joint Senate and House of Representatives’ Special Ad Hoc Committee on the Review of the 1999 Constitution.
The National Assembly had on the 29th of March transmitted 44 Constitution alteration bills passed by it to the 36 state Houses of Assembly for concurrence.
GBAJABIAMILA pointed out that the lawmakers owe Nigerians a Constitution that citizens can identify with and call their own.
