Post created on 9:15 am
Deputy President of the Senate Ovie Omo-Agege has said Nigerians should not engage in wishful thinking that the 9th National Assembly will deliver new constitution because it lacks the mandate to do so.
Omo-Agege said this when he hosted members of Alliance of Nigerian Patriots in Abuja according to a statement by his media aide Yomi Odunuga. The delegation was led by Ambassador Umunna Orjiako.
The senator, who heads the Senate Adhoc Committee on Constitution Review, stressed that the National Assembly has no powers to replace the current Constitution but can only amend it and therefore, urged those calling for a brand new constitution to channel their energy towards participating actively in the ongoing amendment of the constitution.
