The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the Senate’s planned constitution review, Senate Deputy President, Ovie Omo-Agege, said on Friday.
Omo-Agege, who chairs the Senate Adhoc Committee on Constitution Review, said in his New Year message that the pandemic “disrupted our earlier plans to have the constitution alteration bills voted on sometime in December last year.”
He however assured that the National Assembly was not relenting in getting the job done.
He pledged that the Senate would be fair to all, while efforts are being made to ensure that the report of the panel would be ready in record time.
“Consequently, we will have those votes taken on each of these bills separately in not too distant time,” he said in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yomi Odunuga, in Abuja.
He urged Nigerians to use the New Year to renew their commitment to collective prosperity, growth and development by contributing more to nation building.
