The House of Representatives has concluded voting on 33 major bills to amend several parts of the Nigerian constitution. The House decision on the bills follows the vote by the Senate on them on Wednesday.

During their vote on Thursday, the House of Reps members joined their Senate colleagues to support the #NotTooYoungToRun bill that reduces the age qualification to run for major elective offices.
An aide to Speaker Yakubu Dogara said the speaker helped to rally colleagues to approve that bill.
“This bill is in the interest of the youth which we must empower because if we empower them we are empowering the future generation,” Mr. Dogara was quoted as saying by Turaki Hassan.
Other highlights of Thursdays votes are that the House disagreed with the Senate on come crucial matters such as retaining state independent electoral commissions (which the Senate wants scrapped) and devolution of powers to the states which the Senate rejected.
See the full details of how the House voted on each of the 33 bills, as provided by Mr. Hassan, below

  1. This is totally unacceptable, most of these amendments only seek empowerment of legislature over executive. It biased towards carrying dia negative agendas. This is purely an amendment of d legislative constitution not nigerian constitution. for instance look at d NFIA bill pass in a week with out public hearing so as to out smart d EFCC not to catch up with them of dia financial atrocities, look also d immunities they are seeking for, look also d single term for president/governor why senators are not inclusive. see how they are only representing themselves not nigerians becos d present govt do not favor them, not as business as usual. so nigerians rejectd ur amendments, is null & void & of no effect.
