Three of the five gender bills in the House of Representatives have been re-considered after the House reversed its decision.
Bills on citizenship, indigeneity, and 35 percent equal opportunity for women are among them.
During the voting on proposed constitutional amendments, the bills did not receive the required two-thirds majority of votes to pass.
However the Bills, by the leave of the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, and the House, were re-committed to the Committee of the Whole for consideration today, as they will be considered by the House in the next phase of voting on another set of bills for amendment in four weeks’ time.
