Mike Ozekhome, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria has said that only a new people-driven constitution could guarantee Nigeria’s progress and prosperity.

The statement was made by Ozekhome at a lecture with the title “2023 General Election: The Nigeria Project and the Media” that was given in Calabar as part of 2022 Media Week of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Cross River State Council.

Nigeria’s constitution, according to the keynote speaker, could not be amended indefinitely since doing so would result in a bad constitution.

“Whoever becomes Nigeria’s president in 2023 will fail abysmally if he does not tackle the issue of restructuring through a brand-new people’s constitution, done by Nigerians themselves.

“This constitution must be subjected to them through a popular referendum and plebiscite, without this, Nigeria will be going around on a journey without a destination,” he said.

He added that Nigeria needs a constitution that would make ethnic groups see themselves as Nigerians and not belong to a contraption they could not relate with.
