A committee set up by the National Assembly to review the 1999 constitution has listed 64 bills to be amended. In compiling this list, the committee received memoranda from the Senate, House of Representatives, State Governments, and many other individuals.

Why it matters?
The National Assembly set up the committee to address concerns from various sections of the constitution. The Deputy President of the Senate. Ovie Omo-Agege heads the committee.
 
A source revealed to the Punch Newspaper said, “So far, 64 bills have been considered by the committees; 28 from the Senate. More bills have been referred to the committees since July. But work has been suspended to consider and pass the 2022 budget.”
 
The source added that “Some of the memos, especially the extremely controversial ones, will not see the light of the day; they are dead on arrival. They will be dropped. But memos have not been considered yet. More are still being presented.”
