ACN urges FG to incorporate Uwais Committee report

15 June 2012, 09:13

Lagos - Lawal Shuaibu, the National Secretary of ACN, called on the Federal Government to incorporate Justice Uwais Committee Report on Electoral Reforms in the final document of constitutional amendment.

Shuaibu made this known in an interview in Abuja on Thursday.

'Our fundamental recommendation for the ongoing constitutional amendment is that the Justice Uwais committee report on electoral reforms should be incorporated in the final document,” he said.

Justice Uwais electoral reform committee recommended the introduction of independent candidates and called for the trial and sentence of electoral offenders during election process.

He said that the issue of national security should be clearly redefined in the constitution by the government to ensure the safety of life and property.

The national secretary said: ``a leader with the right mind with the political will is expected to fight every corruption that is retarding the progress of the society.’’

Shuaibu urged the Federal Government to redouble its effort to wage war against corruption, adding that it was the bane of Nigeria's progress.
