PostSubject: Jonathan rejects amended constitution   2015-04-15, 15:51

President Goodluck Jonathan has
rejected the amendments made to
the 1999 Constitution by the
National Assembly, The PUNCH has
learnt.
A top government official, who
pleaded anonymity, told our
correspondent on Tuesday that
Jonathan vetoed the amendment
on Monday.
The official said the decision of the
President not to sign the document
was because the amendment did
not meet the provisions of Section
9 (3) of the 1999 Constitution.
The source explained that with the
return of the document by the
President, the letter accompanying
it might be read on the floors of the
two chambers of the National
Assembly any time from
Wednesday (today).
He said, “The President has vetoed
the constitution amendment and
he has sent it back to the National
Assembly.
“The amendment did not meet the
provision of Section 9 (3) of the
constitution which talks about the
need for four fifth of the National
Assembly to agree with the
amendment.”
Section 9 (3) of the Constitution
reads:
“An Act of the National Assembly for
the purpose of altering the
provisions of this section, section 8
or Chapter IV of this Constitution
shall not be passed by either House
of the National Assembly unless the
proposal is approved by the votes
of not less than four-fifths majority
of all the members of each House,
and also approved by resolution of
the House of Assembly of not less
than two-third of all states.”
The rejected amended constitution
granted approval for the separation
of the office of the Attorney-
General of the Federation from that
of Minister/Commissioner of Justice.
