THE House of Representatives, on Thursday passed bills seeking to establish a South-East Development Commission and a South-West Development Commission.’

Equally passed were bills to establish a North-Central Development Commission and a North-West Development Commission.

All the six geopolitical zones will now have development commissions, as the Niger Delta Development Commission already exists for the oil producing states in the South-South and some in the South-East and South-West.

There is also the North-East Development Commission, which was established in the aftermath of Boko Haram insurgency in the geopolitical zone.

Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, and 80 other lawmakers suspected to be members from Yoruba-speaking states, introduced a bill seeking to establish a South-West Development Commission.

The SSDC would be established despite the existence of the NDDC.
