The Deputy President of the Senate declared Monday that recent views allegedly expressed by the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan and Senator Abdullahi Adamu (APC Nasarawa West) against agitators of restructuring will not in any way affect the report of the Ad – hoc committee on Constitution Review.
Omo – Agege, who stated this during questions and answers session after briefing the media on Zonal Public Hearings slated for Wednesday and Thursday this week across the six geo – political zones and National Public Hearing slated for next week in Abuja , said their views were personal and not that of the Senate.
Lawan had has widely reported in the media last week told journalists at the State House that those calling for restructuring should start from their respective states while Senator Abdullahi Adamu in a potent response to resolutions of Southern Governors in Asaba , described them as betrayers for calling for State Police establishment and banning of open grazing.
When asked whether such views will not influence the Committee ending up with cosmetic constitution review report as against very substantial ones expected from them by Nigerians who are fed up with over centralised federation the country is running as against decentralised one bequeathed to it at Indolence in 1960, Omo – Agege said aggregate of opinions gathered from Nigerians at the hearings and from memoranda already received will shape the report of the committee.
