Ongoing Constitutional Review, A Means Of Spending Budgeted Funds – Makinde

Peter Jerome

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state has disclosed that the Ahmad Lawan led National Assembly budgets money annually for the constitution review exercise, adding that what they are doing now is solely in a bid to spend the budgeted money and not to effect any positive change in the system.

He described the ongoing review of the 1999 constitution by the National Assembly as a complete waste of time, stating that nothing will come out of it.

Speaking further, the governor wondered why the National Assembly and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have refused to implement the report of the 2014 National conference which was convened by former President Goodluck Jonathan.

He said “The ongoing constitution review is a complete waste of time. When they even took people to Abuja, they stayed there, and they produced a document”.

” Former President Goodluck Jonathan didn’t sign it because he thought he was going to come back and wanted to sign it after coming back. That document has been on their table since 2015, what have they done with it?”

“Yes, every year they vote money for the review of the constitution and the National Assembly they have to spend that money. That is the exercise going on now. If anything comes out of it, that may be my end in politics”.
