Deputy Senate President and Chairman Senate Ad Hoc Committee on the Review of the 1999 Constitution, Ovie Omo-Agege, has said the panel extended the submission of memoranda by two weeks following appeals from stakeholders.

In a statement on Thursday in Abuja by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yomi Odunuga, the Deputy Senate President said the new deadline for turning in memoranda is now Friday, September 25, 2020, as against Friday, September 11, 2020, the panel earlier stipulated.

The statement added: “The request for extension of deadline was approved as part of measures to further strengthen the Constitution review process and widen opportunities for more groups and individuals to be involved.

“As stated earlier, all proposals or memoranda are to be submitted to the secretariat of the committee in Room 0.28, Senate New Wing at the National Assembly Complex, Abuja.

“Submissions can also be made electronically through the Committee Secretariat’s WhatsApp line 08033109357/08097522601, and email [email protected]

“’The general public, Executive and Judicial bodies, civil society organisations (CSOs), professional bodies and other interest groups are expected to submit memoranda or proposals for further alteration(s) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) towards promoting good governance and welfare of all persons in our country on the principles of freedom’, noted an earlier statement issued on the matter.”
