IPOB: Reps revisit devolution powers


The House of Representatives has resolved to revisit the devolution of power bill which failed during the constitutional amendment in June. The return to the bill is to curb agitations, such as the one by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB. This was contained in a matter of urgent public importance raised by the leader of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, on Tuesday. Mr. Gbajabiamila noted that different agitations across the country have led to divergent views on the structures upon which the unity of Nigeria rests. Events of the last few weeks brought Nigeria close to the precipice,  but for the determination of Nigerians in their various show of commitment to the peace and unity of the country. Hence the urgent need for the intervention of the House of Representatives. Apart from revisiting devolution of powers bill, the House has also resolved to set up a strong committee to liaise with stakeholders across the six geopolitical zones for practical solutions to issues that threaten the unity of Nigeria.
