Speaker of the house of representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, says National Assembly can not make perfect constitution but its objective is to deliver a more inclusive constitution.

Lately, there have been a series of public hearings on the review of the 1999 constitution.

Delivering the 112th founder’s lecture of the King’s College Old Boys Association (KCOBA) on Saturday in Lagos, Gbajabiamila said:  “We took ownership of our country by sacrificing blood, sweat and tears to secure democratic governance and make Nigeria into a place where grand visions can be made real by determined effort and where hope can thrive,”

“As in the words of our old national anthem, we have made of this nation where ‘though tribes and tongue may differ in brotherhood we stand’.

“In the house of representatives, we are currently in the process of a substantive review of our nation’s constitution. Our objective is to deliver a constitution that more effectively organises our politics to make it more inclusive, enshrine efficient mechanisms for holding the institutions of state to account and put an end to the debilitating conflicts that continue to tear our nation apart.
