President, V.P, Governors, Deputy Governors to lose immunity
Sitting Presidents will no longer enjoy immunity in criminal matters if the alteration being proposed to the 1999 Constitution by the Senate sails through, TheNation is reporting.
Also to lose immunity is the Vice President, Governors and their deputies in the impending alteration.
This followed the second reading of a Bill titled: “A Bill for an Act to alter the provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 to qualify criminal liability for certain public officers under Section 308” sponsored by the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege.
