1999 Constitution Is Fraudulent — Ayo Adebanjojo


The leader of Afenifere, Adebanjo, said the 1999 constitution was fake and did not express the people’s collective will, because the military forced it on the country.
Adebanjo remembered that when the regions had autonomy, the country had to return to the Independence Constitution of 1960.
He said, “My view is that the constitutions of 1960 and 1963 gave us more freedom and autonomy that we are all agitating for.”

Why do we now emphasize restructuring? And there is a fake 1999 constitution. It does not reflect the people’s preference.
Interestingly, some of our friends from the North, when we talk about restructuring, would say, ‘They want me to split the government.’ But, the one that wants to divide the nation is someone who rejects true federalism that is reform.

The problem of the country’s current insecurity is that the governors have no power over the security services in their states. That is what we now need to tackle.
In 2023, where does the presidency go? Now that’s not the point. The main issue is to hold the nation united first. Let us then make the issue of the presidency legislative, not the agreement of a gentlemen.
This nation is not loved by anyone speaking about the election without changing this constitution. It is the 1999 constitution that has made Northern Nigerians feel that he or she should not be president if they don’t help anybody.

All the turmoil over secession from Biafran is because they (Igbos) feel excluded under the constitution. I just hope that the democratic forces in the North will force President Buhari to restructure the country before it all burns to the ground.
We now have a constitution which is fake. It is not a constitution of ours. It has, most importantly, failed, and everyone has testified to this truth. It simply does not work.

“We need to impress President Buhari to change the constitution to one that everyone agrees to, to save us from this situation.”
