Na­tional Con­fer­ence: Se­nate bill em­pow­ers Jonathan to pro­pose new con­sti­tu­tion

Daily Trust - - VIEWS -

Con­sti­tu­tion is a supreme doc­u­ment. No one should give the pow­ers of propos­ing a new con­sti­tu­tion to the in­di­vid­ual of a pres­i­dent. The cur­rent struc­ture of con­sti­tu­tional changes en­sures wide ac­cep­tance by all Nige­ri­ans be­fore any change is made to our supreme con­sti­tu­tion. The Ex­ec­u­tive should sim­ply con­tinue to ex­er­cise their author­ity to pro­pose bills.


shahid­ *********************** That is the only thing they are ca­pa­ble of do­ing best – mak­ing noise and money. This will not be tol­er­ated in a coun­try where cit­i­zens are se­ri­ous. But in Nigeria, parliamentarians are not do­ing any­thing ex­cept in­sin­cere re­marks and se­cret deals. The coun­try is not at their heart. They say what they don’t mean. They think they can hood­wink the masses.

The Ad­viser

sid­don­look1@ya­ *********************** I don’t think we need a new con­sti­tu­tion for now be­cause that can pave way for the present govern­ment to elon­gate its ten­ure. I think what the law­mak­ers should do is to gather opin­ion from Nige­ri­ans be­fore go­ing ahead to ini­ti­ate the bill for new con­sti­tu­tion so that Nige­ri­ans will have con­fi­dence in them. But by virtue of the present sit­u­a­tion that Nige­ri­ans are, in­se­cu­rity is the most im­por­tant thing to tackle for now so that Nige­ri­ans can freely move around the coun­try.

charlese­ *********************** We are now see­ing what our elders have been telling us, that Mr. Pres­i­dent and his sup­port­ing Sen­a­tors and politi­cians have hid­den mo­tives on this cur­rent na­tional con­fer­ence. Af­ter us the masses, it will def­i­nitely come to you, the rich and the lead­ers of our dear re­gion.
