The House of Representatives yesterday cancelled the public presentation of the report of the People’s Public Sessions on constitution review following allegations that the document was doctored to favour certain interests.
The sessions were held in the 360 Federal constituencies late last year and the House had announced the presentation would hold by 10am yesterday.
But indications that something was wrong began to dawn on stakeholders when they waited for nearly two hours with no sign of the speaker Aminu Waziri Tambuwal who was billed to chair the event. When Tambuwal, along with other officers, came into the venue at about noon, he announced that the event was cancelled.
“At this stage, there is an issue that would have to do with the total collated result before it is presented to the public today. As the leadership, we have reviewed the process so far, and we have realised that we cannot go on with this programme today,” the speaker told a befuddled audience.
