NORTHERN ELDERS FORUM OPPOSE CONSTITUTION REVIEW

Written by on September 1, 2020

THE NORTHERN ELDERS FORUM (NEF) HAS FAULTED MOVES BY THE SENATE TO REVIEW THE 1999 CONSTITUTION (AS AMENDED).

NEF ACCUSED THE FEDERAL LAWMAKERS OF SPENDING HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY TO FUND THE CONSTITUTION REVIEW PROCESS SINCE 1999 WITHOUT ANY MEANINGFUL IMPACT ON THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE.

QUEST NEWS GATHERED THAT WHILE ADDRESSING JOURNALISTS YESTERDAY IN ABUJA, NEF’S DIRECTOR OF PUBLICITY, DR. HAKEEM BABA-AHMED, ADVISED THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY TO DIRECT ITS ENERGY AND MANDATE TOWARDS CONVINCING PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI TO END THE INSURGENCY IN THE NORTH-EAST AND KILLINGS IN MOST PARTS OF THE COUNTRY.

THE SENATE AD-HOC COMMITTEE ON THE REVIEW OF THE 1999 CONSTITUTION (AS AMENDED) HAD INVITED THE PUBLIC TO SUBMIT MEMORANDUM TO ASSIST THE “FURTHER ALTERATION OF THE PROVISIONS OF THE CONSTITUTION (AS AMENDED).”

BUT NEF QUERIED THE VALUE OF SUCH EFFORTS IN THE PAST, SAYING IT IS CONVINCED THAT THIS REPETITIVE INITIATIVE OF THE SENATE IS A PREDICTABLE WASTE OF TIME, RESOURCES AND ENERGY OF THE COUNTRY AND SHOULD NOT BE SUPPORTED BY NIGERIANS.
