NIGERIA: Confab Will Serve as a Catalyst for Constitutional Reforms

As the Constitutional Conference proceeds apace, a member of the House of Representatives, Kingsley Chinda (PDP, Rivers), has described it as a catalyst for future constitutional reforms, suggesting that Nigerians should be given the mandate to decide on what affects them, which may be subsequently referred to the National Assembly for further action.
 
Chinda, who was explaining the issue of referendum, which President Goodluck Jonathan had hinted would be the next step to be taken to ratify the outcome of the conference, said although there is no such provision in the constitution, its result could enrich the constitution review process being undertaken by the House.
