Nigeria’s Zonal Public Hearing a Success


Mr. Lawan, the Senate President, praised the zonal public hearings held across the country’s six geopolitical zones as “very effective.”

He urged Nigerians to take advantage of the national public hearing, which begins on Thursday, to express their views on matters that would improve government quality.

“Let me also express my gratitude to the members of the Senate Constitution Review Committee for holding public hearings across the country.

“In reality, according to the report we received, the public hearings were quite effective in all of the centers.

“I also want to encourage Nigerians to participate in the national public hearing, which will begin on Thursday.

“The National Assembly, particularly the Senate, is committed to this initiative.

A lot of issues arose during the public hearings on the constitution review that took place across the country.

In accordance with the cardinal principles of federalism, it is necessary to empower states more than the federal government.

Another is the necessity to give local governments autonomy, especially in light of the country’s recent security concerns.

People also agree that the law enforcement agencies, particularly the police and the armed forces, appear to be overburdened by the security issues. Terrorism, robbery, kidnapping, and other forms of criminality are manifestations of the situation of insecurity.

From June 3 to 4, a two-day National Public Hearing on proposals to amend the articles of the Federal Republic of Nigeria’s 1999 Constitution will be conducted at the African Hall of the International Conference Centre (ICC) in Abuja.

Meanwhile, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, the Chairman of the Constitutional Review Committee and the Deputy Senate President, said funding for the constitutional review had not been allocated. “We have not yet received an appropriation in the 2021 budget due to some oversight,” he explained. Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, the committee’s chairman, highlighting the Constitutional Review Committee’s challenges, mentioned funding, in a pre-event briefing. In January of 2020, Senate President Ahmed Lawan informed the public that the committee was in motion and would be led by the current chairman.
