Senate takes over code of conduct tribunal

Senate asks FG to conduct Fresh Census in 2018

The senate has passed the code of conduct amendment bill, vesting the powers to appoint the staff of the code of conduct tribunal in the national assembly

The president as at now is empowered to appoint staff of the tribunal.

But in the amendment bill, the national assembly will not only appoint the tribunal’s staff, they would report to it instead of the presidency.

House of Representatives which initiated the bill, on Wednesday reduced the tenure of the tribunal’s chairman and members until they are 70 year old to five years, which is renewable for another five years.

The amended bill also compelled that before anyone can be charged before the tribunal, he must have written a statement admitting breach in the assets declaration forms.
