Constitution Review: NLC Demands Release of Report on Public Hearing

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has called on the National Assembly to make public the report of the public hearing held across the country on the review of the 1999 Constitution. The Congress warned the House of Representatives not to yield to pressure from some quarters, particularly the Governors’ Forum whom it alleged is against some popular proposals on critical sections of the constitution most Nigerians advocated should be included in the new constitution.

President of the NLC, Abdulwahed Omar, in a statement said the signals coming from the House on the review of the constitution was disturbing, warning the lawmakers not to truncate the will of the Nigerian people.

Omar specifically warned that the National Assembly should not allow itself to be used to impose tenure elongation for any political office, including the office of the president and governor as Nigerians have consistently opposed it.
