The Rotation of Power Bill, 2022 (SB. 1040), being sponsored by the Senator representing Benue South Senatorial District, Sen. Abba Moro, on Tuesday, passed first reading on the floor of the Senate.
A statement by Moro’s Special Assistant on New Media, Emmanuel Eche-Ofun, accessed by The Voice on Tuesday explains that the bill seeks to allow for rotation of political power among the geo-political zones, senatorial districts and federal constituencies, in presidential, gubernatorial, senatorial and House of Representatives offices in Nigeria.
According to the SA, ” the bill, when passed into law, shall address the issue of marginalization of minority ethnic groups and tribes in the country, give equal opportunities to every Nigerian citizen to contribute to nation building, unite and harness our diversity as a source of strength rather than polarization, ignite the spirit of patriotism and nationalism among citizens, and inspire hope in the project ‘Nigeria.”
