President of the Nigeria Senate  Senator Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan took to his verified twitter page that he has set up fifty six man constitution review committee which will be Chaired by the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege. and he wrote below

In line with my earlier resolve to commence the process of amending the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, today I constituted a 56 man constitution review committee to be headed by the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.
The committee will engage not only members of the National Assembly, and other statutory bodies like INEC, Civil Society groups, it will also engage with Nigerians who are interested in the way and manner we do our duties in the Senate.
Distinguished Senators who are not members can still participate by giving any submission, and any advice they feel strongly about for this committee to succeed.
Nigerians are therefore welcome to engage the committee as it is supposed to be a platform where issues will be brought, and where those who are interested should ensure that they make every possible effort, including presentations for their views to be considered.
As a National Assembly, particularly the Senate, we want to have a very stable country. We want a country that gives every citizen the opportunity to actualize his or her dream. We want to have a security that is enhanced and an economy that works for everyone.
