The National Assembly is in the process of reviewing and amending the 1999 constitution in a way that will create provision for granting Immunity to the government hierarchy consisting of the three arms of government.
Due to the present case surrounding the Senate president about his false declaration of assets, he will be priviledged to benefit from the new constitution even though his arrest leading to a trial have raised many eyebrows and lots of criticisms.
Also entitled to the immunity will be the Deputy Senate President, Speaker of the House of Representatives, his deputy and the Chief Justice of the Federation, CJ.
This hint was dropped by the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Mr. Leo Ogor, in an exclusive interview stating that:
If the head of the executive arm; the President, and his Vice should enjoy immunity, the heads of the other two arms of government; the legislature and the judiciary, should also benefit from the immunity
This, Ogor reasoned, would reduce distractions and crisis in the National Assembly thereby putting a stop to the frequent changes of the presiding officers as a result of external influence.
