The controversy surrounding the amendment of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to another twist on Sunday with the senate declaring that the crisis was far from being over.
The ruling of the #Supreme Court last week on the constitution, which urged both waring parties to maintain status quo, has been faulted by the senate.
The Senate insist that the highest court in the country is not competent to prevent the #National Assembly from conducting its constitutional legislative functions including amending the 1999 Constitution.
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Information, Media and Public Affairs, #Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe, who made the position of the senate known argued that no arm of government had the right to stop another from functioning.
Abaribe said: “The Supreme Court is wrong. The law does not allow one arm of the government to stop another arm of government from performing its duties.
“The Supreme Court cannot stop us from legislating and if they say that the Supreme Court is stopping us from making laws, it is misleading and it amounts to misreading the powers of the Supreme Court.”
With the above position, the National Assembly has made public the desire of the house to press ahead with the amendment of the #Nigerian Constitution.
