Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has said that the National Assembly counts on inputs from the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA to amend the country’s constitution.
Ahmad stated this while congratulating Olumide Akpata on his election as the President of the Association.
This was contained in a statement on Saturday by his Special Adviser on Media, Ola Awoniyi.
Lawan said: “Senate President congratulates new NBA President, Olumide Akpata”, Lawan noted that Akpata and his team convinced their learned colleagues that they possess the experience, integrity, and capacity to lead the association, urging them to live up to the high expectations.
“The need for cooperation between the National Assembly and the NBA is even more cogent now in the light of the impending process of a constitutional amendment on which the designated parliamentary Committee is poised to go full blast as soon as Parliament resumes from the current recess.
“We at the National Assembly will count on the inputs of members of the public and in particular the respected members of the bar in the efforts to finetune our constitution.”
