…As Senate Fails To Provide Special For Seat For Women Inspite Of Aisha Buhari’s Lobby
The upper chamber of the National Assembly move prisons, Railway and power generation from Exclusive list to Concurrent list.
Just as the review to include Value Added Tax on the Exclusive Legislative List failed to scale through.
Bill on prison was to “delete prisons in the Exclusive Legislative List and Redesignate it as Correctional Service in the Concurrent Legislative List; and for Related Matters.”
The Bill on the Railway was “to move Railway from the Exclusive Legislative List to Concurrent Legislative List ; and for Related Matters.”
The Bill on power generation was “to allow States Generate, Transmit and Distribute Electricity in Area covered by the National Grid; and for Related Matters.”
Inspite of the the wife of Mr. President, Aisha Buhari lobby the Senate to provide for special seat for women in the National and State House of Assembly fall on deaf ears.
