The House Committee on Constitution Review, under the leadership of Rep. Benjamin Okezie Kalu, the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, has extended the deadline for the submission of memoranda from the public on the review of the 1999 Constitution (as amended). The new deadline is April 30, 2024.

This extension is an outcome of a resolution of the House Committee on Constitution Review during its last meeting and provides additional time for stakeholders, organizations, and interested individuals to contribute their ideas and perspectives on aspects of the Constitution they want to be amended. The Committee is committed to ensuring that all voices are heard and considered in this important national endeavour.

In a statement, Rep. Chief Dr. Philip Agbese, the Spokesman for the House Committee on Constitution Review, stressed the significance of public participation in the process, 

He stated that, “The extension of the deadline demonstrates our commitment to ensuring that the Nigerian people are actively involved in shaping our nation’s future. We encourage everyone to visit our website, [www.hccr.gov.ng], to learn more about the process and submit their memoranda.”

According to the Deputy Speaker, Kalu, the Constitution Review process, is a priority for the 10th Assembly of the House of Representatives.

 “We are resolute in managing this process to deliver an amended Constitution that authentically mirrors the aspirations of Nigerians. This is a pivotal moment in our nation’s history, and we are fully committed to getting it right,” he emphasized.

The previous deadline for submission was April 10, 2024.

For further information and guidelines on the submission of memoranda, the public is advised to please visit the official website of the House of Representatives or contact Mr Wali Baba Shehu, the Clerk of the House Committee on Constitution Review.
