Only 11 out of the 36 State Houses of Assembly have shown independence and loyalty to the nation in the six months since 44 constitution amendment bills were passed and sent to them.
This was revealed by Ovie Omo-Agege, Chairman of the National Assembly Constitution Review Committee. He said the 11 states were the only ones that have given the bills any thought.
The legislator said that the 25 other State Houses of Assembly had declined to consider the bills.
This was said by Omo-Agege on Tuesday at a news briefing at the National Assembly to discuss the 44 proposed constitutional amendment legislation.
The Conference of Speakers of State Houses of Assembly wrote to the Deputy Senate President stating that the remaining states will not act on the measures unless the National Assembly passes four new bills they have suggested.
The bills include one to formalize legislative bureaucracy in the constitution, establish a state police force, establish a state judicial council, and streamline the process for dismissing state house of assembly chairpersons.
