CCT amendments has passed only the Senate, not House of Reps- Femi Gbajabiamila

Majority leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, took to his twitter handle, to react to last week's announcement by the senate that it has amended the CCT act. Gbajabiamila in his tweet said for the records, the amendment was only carried out in the senate and not the House of Representatives.

The House has to validate any of such amendments before it can become law. The senate amended section 3 of the Act thus: “Upon complaint(s) of any breach or where it appears to the bureau that there is a breach of the provision or this Act, the person concerned shall be given particulars of such non compliance or breaches to explain before any reference to the tribunal.”

This implies that the CCB cannot immediately refer a matter to theCCT without giving a public officer a notice; one of the contentions of Saraki. Section 1 (4) which was expunged, and replaced with “the chairman and members shall serve for a term of five years subject to renewal for one further term only”. Section 4 (2) was amended to substitute the word “president” with “the national assembly” as the one to confer powers on the bureau and the tribunal.

The senate also fixed the age of entry to the bureau at 50, and the number of members of the tribunal to sit in judgment on a case at three.
