NEWS: Senate Passes Bill That Makes HND Minimum Requirements For President And Governor [New Naija News] » Naijacrawl

Earlier today Thursday 12th of March 2020, the Nigeria's Senate passed for the second reading, a constitution amendment bill which prescribes Higher National Diploma (HND) or its equivalent as the minimum educational requirements for aspirants seeking to contest the office of the Nigerian President or state governors.


The bill which is being sponsored by a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from Plateau State, Senator Isfifanus Gyang, also prescribes National Diploma (OND) or its equivalent as the minimum qualification for federal and state lawmakers.


The amendment bill seeks to alter the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to provide for the amendment of Sections 65 (2) (a), and 131 (d).It will also amend Section 106 (c) and Section 177 (d) on minimum education qualification for those seeking election into the State Assembly, Governor, National Assembly and office of the President.The bill seeks the alteration of section 65 (2) (a) of the Constitution which deals with the qualifications for intending members of the National Assembly.


It is instructive to note that the present constitution says “A person shall be qualified for election under subsection (1) of this section if he has been educated up to at least School Certificate level or its equivalent.”Section 65 (2) (a) has now been rephrased to read “if he has been educated to at least a National Diploma level or its equivalent.”The bill also seeks the alteration of Section 131 (d) which deals with minimum requirements for anyone running for the office of the governor.


The current Section of the Constitution states that the person must have “been educated up to at least School Certificate level or its equivalent”.Section 131 (d) is now rephrased to read, “He has been educated up to at least HND level or’ its equivalent.”For House of Assembly, the bill seeks the alteration of section 106 (c) of the Constitution.According to the existing law, anyone aspiring to be a member of the House of Assembly must have “been educated up to at least the School Certificate level or its equivalent”.But Section 106 (c) is now rephrased to read, “If he has been educated up to National diploma level or its equivalent.”The bill seeks the alteration of section 177 (d) of the Constitution for governors.As it is currently, the Section states that the person must have “been educated up to at least School Certificate level or its equivalent”.However, Section 177 (d) is now rephrased to read, “If he has been educated up to at least Higher National Diploma Level or its equivalent.”


However, The Senate President, Senator Ahmad Lawan has now referred the bill to the Committee on Constitution Review after the senators passed.



The bill is a direct constitutional amendment towards what happen when President Buhari wanted to be reelected, but fails to provide original copies of his SSCE credentials.
