Just In: Governors, speakers meet in Abuja over constitution amendment

State governors and speakers of state assemblies are meeting at the old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa to discuss the planned review of the nation’s constitution.

The meeting is being chaired by the forum’s chairman,  Abdulazeez Yari, who is also the governor of Zamfara State.

The Conference of Speakers has given a December 20 deadline to all Houses of Assembly to conclude debate on the proposed amendments sent to the states by the National Assembly.

At least two-thirds of all state assemblies need to approve each proposed amendment in order for the process to move to the next stage.
