Kalu Speaks On South-East Dev Commission Bill.

Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Benjamin Okezie Kalu says the South East Development Commission Bill that passed through third reading in the Green Chambers and the Senate will soon be ready for onward transmission to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his assent.

Kalu said, the bill is presently at the Conference Committee stage for the concurrence of both chambers of national assembly on its sections and provisions.

The Deputy Speaker disclosed this when he received in audience the Directors of Institute for Peace, Security and Development Studies of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka led by their Co-Chairman, Chikwe Udensi on a courtesy visit to his office in Abuja.

He said, the Institute for Peace, Security and Development Studies is a specialized Institute established by the Senate and the Council of the University to research into the causes, dimensions, consequences and possible managements of conflicts and insecurity, and their consequent effects on development, adding that, the bill was an advocacy of Peace In South East Project to help in solving the infrastructural challenges in the region 53 years after the civil war.

He appreciated the Institute for opting to synergize with PISE-P, an initiative birthed by him and other members of the National Assembly from the South East that calls for a non-kinetic way of handling the insecurity in the region.
