The Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), has said the 1999 Constitution should be scrapped and the 1963 Republican Constitution should be amended and adopted as the country’s constitution.

The 80-year-old senior advocate believed that the 1963 Republican Constitution contained all that were being agitated for in the country at the moment.

Of recent, agitations for restructuring, fiscal federalism, state police, amongst others, have been loud in the Southern region of the country with 17 governors and socio-political groups including Ohanaeze Ndigbo and Afenifere clamouring for constitutional review.

Some groups are also agitating for Yoruba Nation and Biafra Republic over perceived injustice and dissatisfaction with the present structure of government.

However, speaking on the television monitored, Sagay said adopting the 1963 Republican would address all agitations the 1963 Republican would address all agitations in the country at the moment.

He said, “My own personal preference is that we should scrap this Constitution and adopt the 1963 Republican Constitution. That Constitution contained everything that is being agitated for now. If we had that, if we adopted it, with amendments here and there, to make it accommodate states that we have now rather than region, I think all these agitations will die down and everybody will be happy.”
