The Speaker of the House of Representatives  Rt. Hon.Femi Gbajabiamila has thrown his weight behind the calls for power devolution and regulation of social media.

Gbajabiamila also  explained  that President Muhammadu Buhari did not honour  an invite by the House last year over insecurity in the country  because some members believed it amounted to setting a bad precedence.

He  gave an indication that the bill seeking amendment to the  electoral law would be passed by the House before July 16.

The Speaker spoke during a chat with youths monitored on Channels Television and Television Continental (TVC) yesterday.

Gbajabiamila, who noted that Nigerians had yet to determine the type of restructuring they desired, however admitted that power devolution was important because many items on the Exclusive Legislative list could be transferred to states.

He said: “Most people have come to understand that the government is top-heavy with 64 items on the Exclusive list. The form of devolving power is restructuring itself. Everybody talks about restructuring, but nobody has been able to talk about what restructuring is.
