MOPICON committee inauguration postponed indefinitely

10 April 2016, 12:37

Lagos - The inauguration of the ministerial committee to review controversial MOPICON draft bill has been postponed indefinitely, reports tns.ng

 The ministerial committee will review the so-far controversial MOPICON draft bill.

The postponement  according to the office of the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, is due to the ongoing emergency Federal Executive Council meeting conveyed by President Muhammadu Buhari in respect of the 2016 budget.

Others belive it is aploy to take the whole process ‘underground’ until those in support of the document have worked it to a point where the opposition becomes inconsequential to the eventual outcome/passage of the bill into law.
