Constitution Review an exercise in Futility, waste of time, public funds — Afenifere

The Yoruba Socio-Political Group, Afenifere has described the ongoing process of amending the 1999 Constitution as an exercise in futility that cannot achieve any meaningful result.

Secretary-General of the group, Chief Sola Ebiseni said this in an interview with newsmen in Akure.

Ebiseni was responding on why the group, did not submit a memorandum to the Senate Committee on the Amendment of the Constitution, which ended its Public Hearing in Akure, Ondo State capital yesterday.

The former commissioner in the state said that “Afenifere believes in and advocates fundamental restructuring of Nigeria for the reinvention of a federal constitution as the agreed principles of governing Nigeria and its diverse ethnic nationalities by our founding fathers, which will ultimately replace the imposed 1999 unitary constitution.
