Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo is seeking for a new constitution that is the people-oriented.
He therefore on Saturday urged the executive and the legislature to work together towards getting a brand new constitution for Nigeria before the situation in the country gets out hand.
Obasanjo who stated this while speaking at the first Dr Frederick Fasehun Memorial Lecture in Lagos said, ”It appears members of the National Assembly are fully aware of the lurking danger and want to be proactive on handling it, but seem to be handicapped.
”The Nigerian Constitution does not give the National Assembly the power to write a new Constitution but the power to amend existing one.
“What is required is a new Constitution to meet the agitation and aspiration of all Nigerians and to allay all fears.”
