The Senate has revealed it is set to probe President Muhammadu’s refusal to assent to bills.
The senate, on Tuesday said it has constituted a committee to probe why President Muhammadu Buhari did not assent to 19 out of the 35 constitution review bills transmitted to him by the National Assembly.
The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, made this assertion in his remarks during resumption of plenary after the Governorship and State Houses of Assembly election.
President Buhari had last week signed into law 16 constitution amendment bills out of the 35 bills transmitted to him by the ninth National Assembly.
Lawan commended President Buhari for assenting to 16 constitution amendment bills, particularly the bills to guarantee the independence of state legislatures and the judiciary.
He, however, said the Upper chamber will engage with the Presidency to understand why the remaining 19 bills were not assented to.
