Senate debates bill on rotation of power

The Nigerian senate has started debating a bill that would establish a system for the transfer of power among the nation’s six geopolitical zones.

Earlier last year, the bill sponsored by Senator Abba Moro of Benue South passed its first reading.

While some Senators contended that it will promote harmony and a sense of belonging for everyone, particularly ethnic minorities, others contended that it violates the Nigerian Constitution.

The bill’s sponsor was however encouraged by Senate President Ahmad Lawan to put the bill on hold and revise it for representation with specific prayers.
