Secure your States, Indigenous Nationalities Alliance Tells Governors
Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS), wants State Governors in the country to work with their Houses of Assembly to make necessary legislative and regulatory arrangement for the effective control and security of their respective territories.
The group described the 1999 Constitution as unworkable, saying if left unchanged, will not move the nation forward.
Addressing newsmen in Ibadan on the 1999 Constitution, chairman of the group, Emeritus Professor Banji Akintoye, said the Constitution had failed to develop the country.
Professor Akintoye, who noted that there were many inequalities in the constitution, frowned at the situation where people could control resources in their environment for their own benefits and called for immediate commencement of process towards referendum to know the mind of citizens on the state of Nigeria.
The group also called on Federal Government to bring itself to the table of Dialogue set up by the constituent components of Nigeria to discuss the way forward.
The group called on people to co-operate with State Governors for the maintenance of law, order, peace and good governance.
