Senator Babafemi Ojudu, representing Ekiti Central senatorial district of Ekiti State, has described the ongoing review of the 1999 constitution by the National Assembly as an exercise that will not serve the people of Nigeria any purpose.
He also asked all progressive Nigerians to join the ongoing battle to ensure a national transformation that will lead to the writing of a new constitution. The senator who spoke at a lecture to mark the 21st anniversary of Osun State said, “A constitution that starts with “we the people” without consulting the people, such as the current one is a fraud. Only imposters write such constitution and only a people without pride and freedom will allow such a constitution to last.
"Therefore, as soon as possible, a constitution of the people for the people and by the people must be written and adopted.”
