National Coordinator of Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), Gani Adams, has called on lawmakers to amend the constitution to resolve imbalance.
Speaking to NAN on Tuesday in Lagos, he said the constitution amendment would be the opportunity to redress constitutional problems and the issue of devolution of power.
Adams said, ”The National Assembly should not miss the golden opportunity to save Nigeria from the core issues of constitutional problems and the issue of devolution of power.
”Devolution of power to state is not what we are talking about; it is the devolution of power to the six or nine regions in Nigeria. It is the only way to go.
”Devolution of power to the regions or regional government is the only way to save the country, and in the interest of peace, we need to find a way of going back to regional governance.
”We cannot guarantee peace in Nigeria except we go by the way of people’s wishes and aspirations for regional government,” he said.
Adams said that people could not be silenced through intimidation from the government but that government should do the right thing when there is time.
He said that power must return to the people, adding that no voice could be silenced if there were imbalances in the government.
