As constitution review ends, Nigerian governors may now lose immunity if indicted for criminal offences.
News went round on Monday that the recommendations so far made by experts guiding the federal lawmakers in the assignment are listed for ratification this weekend.
A two-day arrangement has been made for the experts and the federal lawmakers to have a final look at the recommendations before the final consideration, Quest Times reports.

Quest Times gathered that a major recommendation by the experts is the removal of immunity for criminal offences for those currently covered by the controversial Section 308 of the constitution.
Those captured under it include the president, vice president, governors and deputy governors.
If the amendment is ratified at the meeting scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Nigerian governors indicted for criminal offences will henceforth be impeached and prosecuted.
