Written by City Radio on October 18, 2022
The National Assembly has urged the remaining 25 States Houses of Assembly, who are yet to pass the Constitution amendment bills to do so in the interest of Nigerians.
Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege, the Chairman, National Assembly Joint Committee on Constitution Review and Deputy Senate, said this at a news conference in Abuja on Tuesday.
He said that the new bills sought to amend the Constitution to establish states police; states judicial council, as well as streamlining the procedure for removing of presiding officers of states houses of assembly and the institutionalisation of legislative bureaucracy in the Constitution.
He said that the national assembly was in no way averse to passing bills or memoranda appropriately tabled before it, at any time.
