Oyogist.com has learned that the present Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has deepened calls for a constitutional review in Nigeria, describing it as an opportunity for the people to own the process of making a true Nigerian constitution.

Obaseki Said:

“I am appealing to the National Assembly to separate the clauses of all the deeds to be canvassed for, if truly the amended constitution will be a product of Nigeria. This will enable us to have a choice when it’s brought back for adoption at the State House of Assembly, so that our representatives will choose in line with our presentation today.”

The governor further spoke on the present tenure for presidents and Governors in Nigeria.

According to him, “Others say bicameral legislature should be replaced by unicameral legislature. The National Assembly should look at the issues as it comes and not join all these issues together. If the Constitution is to be amended, it should be done within the next three months.

“I want to reassure Edo people that as a matter of responsibility, the government will continue to canvass the view of the people. The governor has always called for the citizens to take charge of the ownership of government as the government belongs to them,” he added.
