ALERT!!! Nigeria May Not Survive Till 2023 General Election If…Afe Babalola—Popular Nigerian Lawyer and founder of Afe Babalola University, Chief Afe Babalola stated that Nigeria may go out of existence before the 2023 general election if the 1999 Constitution as amended is not discarded.
The constitution which was put in place by the military government and has undergone various amendments, according to him symbolised all that was wrong with the country and must be done away with so a People’ s constitution could be enacted.
According to report from orientaltimes.co, the Founder of Afe Babalola University, Ado Ekiti (ABUAD), stated this in an interview and explained that the people’s constitution could only be possible through a Sovereign National Conference and not by amending the present one.
According to him:
“People are hungry for a sovereign national conference and they will vote certainly for a constitution that will change the current constitution, not amending it.
“We need a new and total change in the constitution, representing the people’s constitution, with true federalism, or alternatively, let us return to the 1966 constitution with just few amendments.
“Without that, we may never have a Nigeria nation. We are getting farther, farther away from being a Nigeria nation now.”
Babalola also brought to light how he was approached by several presidents and heads of state, including late Sani Abacha, to take up political appointments but turned them down.
