The National Assembly has conferred more powers on President Goodluck Jonathan to administer the three states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe, where he declared a state of emergency last week.
Under the new dispensation, governors and local government chairmen in the three states of the North-east zone will henceforth take orders from the president.
This was the resolve of the National Assembly yesterday as the two chambers of the legislature met to harmonise their positions on the request of the president, seeking approval for the declaration of state of emergency in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States, which they had earlier ratified.
The two chambers of the National Assembly on Tuesday had approved the presidential declaration but with some differences in terms of details of its implementation. However, the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) faulted the new powers conferred on the president and accused him of engaging in deceit by reneging on his promise not to allow the state of emergency to affect the operation of democratic structures in the affected states.
