NIGERIA: DELTA STATE ASSEMBLY APPROVES DEATH SENTENCE FOR KIDNAPPERS

April 17, 2013: The Delta State House of Assembly voted against Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of the state on a bill seeking to prescribe death sentence for kidnappers in the state.
The Governor, while exercising his veto power refused assent to the Delta State Anti-Kidnapping and Anti-Terrorism Bill, 2012, which had earlier been unanimously passed by the House.
However, at the Houseā€™s proceedings, 26 of the 29 members voted to override the Governorā€™s veto which effectively makes the bill now an authentic law of the state.
The Speaker, Mr. Victor Ochei, had prior to the voting read out a very lengthy letter sent to the House by the Governor, explaining why he had refused assent to the bill.
According to Governor Uduaghan, ā€œit is my view that death sentence punishment is not likely to serve as deterrent or antidote.ā€
Dissatisfied with the explanation, members, citing Section 100 sub-section 5 of the 1999 Constitution, as amended, which empowered the House to override the Governorā€™s veto by a two-third majority, resolved to take action.
Consequently, 26 of the members voted to override the Governorā€™s veto.
The Speaker, Mr. Ochei, thereafter directed the Clerk of the House to enroll the law in the state High Court, as it has become law with effect from today. (Sources: dailypost.com.ng, 18/04/2013)
