Lawmakers today jubilated at the National Assembly after a bill for the establishment of the South East Development Commission, scaled the second reading.

The bill which was sponsored by two senators, Stella Oduah, PDP-Anambra, and Samuel Anyanwu, PDP-Imo, was refereed to Committee on Establishment and Public Service Matters to report back in 4 weeks.

A similar bill had previously been thrown out in House of Representatives.

The bill is expected to act as a catalyst to develop the commercial potentials of the South East.
