    THE Senate has said its planned zonal public hearing on the review of the 1999 Constitution, would hold from May 26 to 27.

    Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, is the Chairman of the committee which has 59 other Senators drawn from the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory as members.

    He said the group was led by its National Coordinator, Chino Obiagwu (SAN).

    Omo-Agege called on those who had already submitted memoranda to speak to the documents at the events.

    The Deputy President of the Senate pointed out that while Jos and Minna would host the public hearings in the North-Central geopolitical zone, that of North- East and North -West would hold in Bauchi and Gombe as well as Kaduna and Sokoto respectively.

    Similarly, he said for the South East, the exercise would be held in Owerri and Enugu, even as South-South and South-West would be hosted in Port Harcourt and Asaba as well as Akure and Lagos respectively.

    Represented by his Chief of Staff, Dr. Otive Igbuzor, the Delta Central lawmaker assured that women’s interests will be protected in the constitution review.
