Senate Committee did not propose creation of 20 New States

Our attention has been drawn to a media report that the Senate Committee of Review of 1999 Constitution has proposed the creation of additional 20 States.

The report is a gross misrepresentation of the decision of the committee on the request for creation of more states. Far from recommending creation of any state, the Senate Committee, while acknowledging receipts of several Bills proposing creation of new states, decided that it is not in a position to recommend or proposed the creation of any state unless there is compliance with the provisions of section 8 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic as amended.

For ease of reference, Section 8 of the Constitution provides:

elsamad new

An Act of the National Assembly for the purpose of creating a new State shall only be passed if-

(a) a request, supported by at least two-thirds majority of members (representing the area demanding the creation of the new State) in each of the following, namely –

(i) the Senate and the House of Representatives,

(ii) the House of Assembly in respect of the area, and

(iii) the local government councils in respect of the area,

is received by the National Assembly;

(b) a proposal for the creation of the State is thereafter approved in a referendum by at least two-thirds majority of the people of the area where the demand for creation of the State originated;

(c) the result of the referendum is then approved by a simple majority of all the States of the Federation supported by a simple majority of members of the Houses of Assembly; and

(d) the proposal is approved by a resolution passed by a two-thirds majority of members of each House of the National Assembly.

In view of the above, the Senate Committee is not in a position to propose the creation of any state as reported. Rather the committee decided to refer the requests received to the Independent National Electoral Commission to ensure compliance with section 8 of the Constitution by conducting a referendum in the areas if the requests supported by at least two-thirds majority of members (representing the area demanding the creation of the new State) in the Senate,  the House of Representatives and the House of Assembly in the area.

The above clarifications are imperative to set the record straight

Signed

Senator Ajibola Basiru Ph.D.

Chairman, Senate Committee of Media and Public Affairs

  1. Zájem lidí o vývoj situace okolo šíření nového typu
    koronaviru mírně opadl. Kolik lidí tu bude pracovat potom?
    Jediný opravdu smysluplný systém je využívání vstupních bonusů a dodatečných promoakcí od online
    casina. Následně se snaží provést analýzu a hledat
    v číslech nějaký systém. Kupříkladu posloupnost o 10 červených číslech nastane jen jednou za 1 346 spinů.
    Prostě jen svolíte AKO kurzové sázky při vytváření vašeho tiketu.
    Tak třeba neustálé dvojnásobení sázky nemůže dlouhodobě fungovat,
    protože casino má jasně nastaveno, jaké je rozmezí povolených sázek.

    Dvojnásobení sázky může být potom možné klidně jen do 6 spinů.
    Italové prošli kvalifikací, aniž by ztratili jediný bod což jen potvrzuje, že
    jsou v hodně dobré formě a rozhodně si šanci na úspěch nebudou chtít nechat vzít.
    Třetím bonusovým symbolem je soška (bonus), který hráčům
    umožní zahrát si minihru, díky které máte šanci získat ještě více peněz.

    Tentokrát jsme se na stírací Sazka losy podívali z jiného úhlu pohledu:
    Zjišťovali jsme, s kterými losy máte nejvyšší šanci vyhrát hlavní milionovou výhru.
    Za nejlepší stírací losy od Sazky jsou dlouhodobě
    považovány Maxi zlatá rybka, Maxi černá perla a Zlato
    a diamanty. Dlouhodobě jsme si všichni rovni a pokud některá hra má nastavenou výhernost například na 95%, v dlouhodobém
    horizontu opravdu takový objem ze sázek putuje zpět
    mezi hráče.
