National Publicity Secretary of the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP), Mr. Osita Okechukwu has said the new constitution amendment bill introduced in the National Assembly has exposed the president's hidden agenda. He said the bill being sponsored by Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu was not only ill timed, it was aimed to further empower the President absolutely. 

The bill aims to make the President the initiator of constitution amendments, a move which he said would give the President absolute powers. He then said such is capable of scuttling the country's democracy. It also goes against the principle of separation of power and takes away checks and balances in the government. He claims they are gripped by the phobia of the 2015 election.
