The Cross River State House of Assembly has postponed indefinitely, its planned public hearing on the amendment of the Nigerian Constitution.

The letter which one signed by the Director, Legislative Matters and Head of Chambers of the Assembly, Mr. Adie Akabisong claimed that publicity for the exercise has been low.

“This is to inform members of the public particularly invited stakeholders that the Public Hearing on the fourth alteration to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 scheduled for today Tuesday, 12th and tomorrow Wednesday, 13th December, 2017 in the Cross River State House of Assembly has been deferred indefinitely,” the notice read.

According to the letter, the public hearing which was supposed to hold yesterday was postponed to: “Enable the House give the exercise wider publicity and participation.”

But CrossRiverWatch understands that the public hearing was postponed because most of the members, including the Speaker of the House Honorable John Lebo who had attended the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) National Convention in Abuja, last weekend where an aide to Governor Ben Ayade emerged as a national executive, are yet to arrive the state due to flight hitches.
