The President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki has said devolution of power to states has not been foreclosed in the ongoing constitutional amendment exercise.

Saraki told journalists in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital that many senators were still consulting with their constituents on the issue.

He added that the clause on the devolution of power did not scale through because some of his colleagues misread, misunderstood or were suspicious of what the devolution was all about.

The senate president noted that the lawmakers who voted against it were not sure whether it was the same thing as restructuring.

Saraki said, “Nothing is foreclosed in this exercise; you don’t foreclose passage of a bill. We must have a good understanding of how parliament works; it is not foreclosed. It has been defeated as of that day, but it does not mean that it would be defeated when it comes tomorrow.”
