The Senate on Wednesday requested Nigerians who’re agitating for a new constitution for the nation to perish the thought because the National Assembly lacked the powers to take action.

The Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, said this when he hosted members of Alliance of Nigerian Patriots led by Umunna Orjiako in Abuja.

Omo-Agege, who’s the Chairman of the Senate ad-hoc Committee on Constitution Review, gave the explanation in a statement by his media aide, Yomi Odunuga, in Abuja.

He defined that the National Assembly had no powers to interchange the present Constitution however that it might solely amend it.

He stated the advanced democracies like the US of America the place Nigeria’s presidential system of government was fashioned from, additionally engage in piecemeal amendments.

He urged these calling for a new structure to channel their energy towards participating actively within the ongoing modification of the 1999 Structure by the ninth Meeting.

He stated, “We will solely make amendments. And it’s express in Sections 8 and 9 of the Structure on how we are able to do this and the requisite variety of votes required.

“I say that as a result of there are some prime attorneys on this nation, who for some cause, hold saying that we don’t even want any of those, that we should always simply deliver a brand new structure.

“We will’t do this. What we’re mandated to do by law is to look at these provisions and convey them up-to-date with international greatest practices, particularly to the extent that it tallies with the views of the majority of Nigerians.

“So, we aren’t able to replace this Constitution however we are able to solely amend. However, like I stated, many of the points you could have raised right here, like zones replacing states; that’s one other euphemism for going again to the areas. We’ll look into that if that’s what majority of our people need.”
