The Governor, who made this declaration recently, through his Special Adviser on Union Matters and Special Duties, Mr Dare Aragbaiye, during the 59th Founder’s Day Anniversary Lecture of the Adeyemi Federal University of Education in Ondo, argued that the 1999 constitution imposed the whims of a partisan few on the majority of the Nigerian Citizenry and as such, could not be used to advance the cause of the nation.

In the Governor’s words: “if there is any document whose existence represents an experiment in audacious mendacity, it is this so called constitution of the people of the federal republic of Nigeria. The constitution tells manifest lies against itself. It purports to represent the wishes of the Nigerian people but nothing can be farther from this obvious lie.”

Akeredolu, who visibly thought that the current constitution was problematic to the growth of Nigeria, went further to advise the incoming Bola Tinubu administration to tackle the problem headlong.
