Te 2010, Voorzitter of Nigeria Umaru Musa Yar’Adua died of Pericarditis but only after the Senate used a “Doctrine of Necessity” to permit Goodluck Jonathan to succeed him, very very first spil acting Voorzitter te February but then full-time upon Yar’Adua’s death on May 5th. Overheen the course of his nefasto illness, Yar’Adua had to leave Nigeria numerous times to seek treatment. Seven years zometeen the current Nigerian Voorzitter Muhammadu Buhari has bot required to stay te the United Kingdom while he deals with his own health woes which has seen the Senate leap into activity again albeit this health kwestie is only an excuse for head of the Senate Bukola Sakari to attempt and secure power for himself according to volgers of the Voorzitter. Sakari’s deeds consist of numerous proposed constitutional amendments which would strengthen the powers of Nigeria’s bicameral legislature at the expense of the ailing executive and his future successors.
The amendments specifics liquidate the capability of the Executive to makes laws unilaterally, reducing the power of the Voorzitter to disagree with laws passed by the House and Senate, time boundaries on presidential appointments and expediting making a fresh budget. Sakari argues that thesis amendments permit for Nigerian democracy to further develop, but despite his power spil leader of the Senate neither he strafgevangenis his opponents can officially mandate thesis switches without the help of others. The very very first part of the process would be for the lower house to pass the law by two-thirds majority spil well spil two third of all the states ter Nigeria which would be 24 out of 36. Te addition to criticisms that this is a power grab by the Senate with such extensive additions being made to the constitution some critics of the Nigerian government are beginning to say that the Constitution is growing unwieldy ter length. Whether or not approval is swift or not remains to be seen.
