The Special Adviser to the Speaker, Imo State House of Assembly, on Media and Publicity, Emeka Ahaneku has made some far-reaching revelations that would bring an end to the attacks associated with the dust raised on the passage of the Administration of Criminal Justice Law in the state.
Ahaneku disclosed this during a telephone interview with our editor, as part of our investigation to confirm the authenticity of a report that has gone viral on the social media space on a Bill (Administration of Criminal Justice Bill ), that was passed by the Imo Assembly and assented to by the governor of Imo state.
He called on journalists to get their facts right before going to press, saying the Bill was not an Executive Bill as is being speculated.
According to Ahaneku, the Bill was a private members’ Bill
He said the Bill which was amongst the Bills presented to the House before Governor Uzodinma became the Governor of the state followed laid down procedures of first, second and third readings.
He added that at the Committee stage, inputs were received from stakeholders including the Judiciary which actually set up a Committee to deliberate and send inputs to the House of Assembly.
The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Speaker regretted that the House was on vacation with the Speaker and some lawmakers out of town, but assures Imo people that the House as a people and result oriented House would be glad to look into the complaints in a bid to reconcile it with what they have and quickly champion the enactment of a law that will address the issues raised.
