The presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party, Adewole Adebayo, has revealed why he decided not to honour the invitation to speak at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, London popularly known as Chatham House.

Adebayo said he decided not to go outside of the shores of the country to speak to the electorates because he has high respect for Nigeria’s sovereignty.

He said this on Monday at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs’ platform for 2023 presidential candidates, with the theme, “The world of Nigeria and Nigeria in the world: Foreign policy as an adjunct of domestic priorities,” held in Lagos.

The SDP flagbearer lamented that Nigeria’s presidential candidates that were in Chatham House in London had, “further ridiculed and devalued the nation before the world by their appearances.”

The Trade Union Congress has flayed governors over the failure of state houses of assembly to pass the local government autonomy bill in the ongoing constitution amendment exercise.

The TUC Deputy President, Tommy Etim, who described the development as saddening, said the governors were the enemies of the country.

Sequel to the refusal of the states to pass the bill, the Senate on Tuesday directed the Clerk to the National Assembly to transmit the 35 bills that met the requirement of the provision of section 9(2) of the Constitution to the President for assent.

The Red Chamber further called on Gombe, Jigawa, Kebbi, Kwara, Oyo, Plateau, Sokoto, Taraba, and Zamfara assemblies, which had yet to forward their resolutions on the 44 amendments sent to state assemblies, to reconsider their stand on the constitution amendments.
