Constitution review: Senate to hold national public hearing Thursday

NEWSMAN, Abuja – President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, has announced that a national public hearing to alter the provisions of the 1999 constitution will hold on Thursday through Friday this week.

Lawan in a statement issued on Tuesday by his Special Assistant (Press), Ezrel Tabiowo, disclosed that “the 2-day National Public Hearing on proposals to alter the provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 is scheduled for Thursday 3rd to Friday, 4th June 2021, at the African Hall of the International Conference Centre, Abuja”.

He described the zonal public hearings which held last week in the six geo-political zones of the country as “quite successful”.

Lawan appealed to Nigerians to seize the opportunity provided by the national public hearing commencing on Thursday to state their position on issues that would improve the quality of governance.

The Senate President was quoted as saying, “Let me also congratulate the members of the Constitution Review Committee of the Senate, who had conducted the public hearings across the countries.

“[And] in fact, the report we received has shown that in all the centres, the public hearings were quite successful.

“I want to also appeal to Nigerians to take the opportunity of the national public hearing that will take place from Thursday.

“This is an effort that the National Assembly – particularly the Senate is attached to”, he added.

He further said we believe that we must do whatever is necessary to provide a platform for Nigerians to air their views, give their positions and canvass for whatever they feel would make our country better, and make governance more efficient and successful, Punch reported.

Like I said before, we have no preconceived positions on anything and, therefore, this is for our citizens to take the opportunity, Lawan said.
