The Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal, on Monday, November 23, blamed the refusal of former President Goodluck Jonathan to sign the constitutional amendment presented by the 7th Assembly in 2015 as one of the travails of the country.
Tambuwal was the Speaker of the House of Representatives during the time.
The Governor, said this at a workshop titled: “Building Partnership for Resilience: Nigeria’s Turning Point,” organised by the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) in Abuja.
Jonathan, who addressed the Senate before he left office in 2015, pointed out shortcomings in some sections of the Bill.
He faulted Section 4 of the Fourth Alteration Act, 2015, which seeks to alter Section 9 of the 1999 Constitution by inserting a new subsection 3A, which dispenses with the assent of the President in the process of a constitutional amendment.
