Amended Constitution Ready By June – Zakari Mohammed

Zakari MohammedZakari Mohammed, the Chairman, House of Representatives’ Committee on Media and Public Affairs, has said the country’s new Constitution would be ready by June.

However, he did not say whether the amended Constitution will await the outcome of the resolutions emerging from the proposed National Conference.

Mohammed told NAN in Okuta, Baruten Local Government Area of Kwara State that the delay in completing its amendment was as a result of wide consultations.

He said the task of amending the Constitution is a tedious job and not one which people would sit down and conclude hastily.”But we are looking at the month of June or July as when we are going to have a clean copy of the new Constitution for Nigeria.”For what we did in the House of Representatives, we went to the 360 Federal Constituencies and, as much as possible, we were able to gather the views of the people.”

What we have reported is exactly what we pushed forward for them and at the end of the day, we are going to have a Constitution that is workable for the Nigerian people,” Mohammed said.
