Lasun heads panel on Constitution review


YUSUF Sulaiman LasunSpeaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has named the Deputy Speaker, Sulaimon Yussff Lasun, Chairman of a 47-man ad-hoc committee for the review of the nation’s constitution.

Recall that attempt by the National Assembly to facilitate a further review of the 1999 Constitution did not yield the desired result, as former President Goodluck Jonathan withheld his assent over concerns on the processes adopted in arriving at certain amendments to the document.

Both Houses of Parliament have separately amended their rules, with the intention to resurrect the document, clean it up and re-present it for adoption by their committees of the whole, and subsequently transmit it to incumbent President Mohammadu Buhari for assent, without going through the entire process of public hearings any more.
