Insecurity-Restructuring,Senate will Revisit Devolution of Powers- The Senate President

Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, yesterday, assured leaders and elders from four of the six geo-political zones of the country, under the aegis of Southern and Middle Belt Leaders Forum, that the upper chamber will revisit the rejected devolution of power items in its constitution amendment exercise.

He also noted that the National Assembly was ready to play its role to ensure that the country continues on the path of democracy and growth, adding that to strengthen the country’s democracy, the number one institution Nigerians must defend is the parliament. The Senate President added that the 8th National Assembly has been working hard to create an enabling environment that will attract investors and that the federal legislature will continue along that line. On the call to revisit clauses that were rejected during the ongoing constitution review process, Saraki said the National Assembly was ready to reconsider the clauses and will  do so after the passage of the 2018 budget.
