Confab to debate finance committee report Monday  

The National Conference was suspended last week after the passing of the chairman’s wife.

The National Conference will resume plenary Monday, to consider the report of its committee on public finance and revenue, among other items.

Plenary was abruptly adjourned Wednesday following the death of Maryamu, wife of the conference chairman, Justice Idris Kutigi.

The report of the committee on public finance and revenue is expected to generate controversy because of its relevance to government’s revenue sources and spending.

Part of the responsibilities of the committee was to thoroughly examine and ascertain the adequacy of existing laws regarding the relationship between the three tiers of government and to recommend appropriate fiscal policy of the country.

The report, which was laid by the committee chair, Adamu Aliero and his deputy, Azzu Agboti was scheduled for deliberation on Wednesday but had to be carried forward due to the demise of the Kutigi’s wife.

Meanwhile, the conference has concluded debates and taken decisions on the reports of three committees.

These are the committee on environment; the committee on religion; and the committee on land tenure and national boundaries.

Although a few delegates offered dissenting voices, the conference adopted all its decisions through a consensus voice vote.

However, the conference failed to arrive at a consensus on two outstanding issues emanating from the committees on religion and the committee on land tenure and national boundaries.

These included the resolution to remove the Land Use Act from the 1999 Constitution to make it easy for amendment and the resolution on whether to scrap the Pilgrims’ Welfare Boards.

According to the conference leadership, the two resolutions were placed in “bracket,” and will be revisited on a later date.
