constitutionZakari Mohammed, the Chairman, House of Representatives’ Committee on Media and Public Affairs, on Sunday said the country’s new Constitution would be ready by July.

Mohammed told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Okuta, Baruten Local Government Area of Kwara that the delay in producing it was as a result of wide consultation.

He said the task of amending a constitution is a tedious job and not a job which people would sit down and conclude easily.

“But we are looking at the month of June or July as when we are going to have a clean copy of the new constitution for Nigeria.

“For what we did in the House of Representatives, we went to the 360 Federal Constituencies and, as much as possible, we were able to gather the views of the people.

“What we have reported is exactly what we pushed forward for them, and what we are saying is that at the end of the day, we are going to have a constitution that is workable for the Nigerian people,’’ Mohammed said.(NAN)
