    Restructuring: People Don't Understand Devolution Of Power Bill - Saraki

    Senate President, Bukola Saraki has said that the devolution of power bill failed in the National Assembly because some people misread or misunderstood its purpose.

    The former Kwara State Governor was an integral member of the house during the Constitutional amendments that took place in the upper chambers on Wednesday, of which over 33 bills were passed in the house. 

    He stated that the devolution bill would have been passed into law if it was first initiated some months ago but still believes that the bill could scale through the Senate.

    “The fact that the devolution bill lost that day does not mean it will not scale though after the
    recess. As you know that in the Senate we have three senators representing each state of the federation and the Federal Captial Territory (FCT).

    Whatever we do there, we must engage and have a feedback from our constituencies. I believe that if this constitutional amendment had come about eight months ago, the devolution bill would have been passed easily. But I think we must be honest with ourselves that presently, there is a lot of mistrust in the country.

    The air is very polluted. Let us be very frank and that blame must be all round. What happened was that a lot of people misread or misunderstood or were suspicious of what the devolution bill was all about.”
