The controversial South East Development Commission bill has passed the crucial second reading in the Senate.

A lawmaker from Imo State and the sponsor of the bill, Senator Sam Anyanwu, told the Senate that it would tackle issues of infrastructure deficit, unemployment and environmental issues in South-East Nigeria.

The passage of the bill on Wednesday at the Upper House comes a week after it was rejected by lawmakers in the House of Representatives.
