The House of Representatives Constitution Review Committee, on Wednesday, set December 2025 as the target day to deliver a new constitution for the country.
Benjamin Kalu, the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives and the chairman of the committee, said this at their pre-inaugural meeting in Abuja.
Mr Kalu said the committee would set up a realistic time, specifically December 2025, to complete their activities.
He said that the review would be the sixth time that the National Assembly would embark on the amendment of the nation’s constitution.
He said the committee was aware of the challenges of insecurity and economic difficulties confronting it, adding that since 2010, NASS had made landmark changes to the constitution since the military regime in 1999.
He listed some of the amendments made to include judicial reform, electoral reforms and moving certain responsibilities of government from the exclusive to the constituent list.
