As Nigerians get set for the 2023 Polls,the leading Campaigner for Interim Government and Restructuring,Reverend Chris Okotie has warned that for Nigeria to overcome the 2023 global economic headwinds predicted by experts, the country would need strong governance structures and a stable polity which are absent in the present constitution .
Okotie reiterated that Nigeria’s future is guaranteed only when the country is restructured.
In his New year message released by his Media Adviser,Ladi Ayodeji in Lagos during the week , Okotie pointed out that unless his Aboriginal Democracy proposition is adopted, the country could flounder under a severe socio-political and economic crisis.
Okotie observed that, given the fact that 80 percent of our income is used to service our current debt of 77 trillion Naira, against a backdrop of a bloated bureaucracy, the country has no choice under the current constitution than to keep borrowing to run the country.
He said,in the light of this reality,a new constitution is required to deal with all the existential problems in all spheres of our national life, which is why Aboriginal Democracy is recommended.
Okotie expressed concern that the IMF has warned that one third of the world, including Nigeria would be in recession this year.
