Nigeria: Constitutional amendment

Adefunke on Adefunke comments on the Nigerian consitutional amendment and asks if there is a copy available online for citizens to read and asks “My concerns are about the very bad precedent this will set, a sitting administration amending the constitution without following due process. What will stop some future president appointing his/her favorite dog (four legged animal as opposed to best human friend) as Minister of Finance like Caligula was reported to have done with his favorite stallion?”
