    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.
