Ankko Briggs, has lamented that the Nigerian constitution is tailored to favour the North and Muslims.
According to him, the creation of the Nigerian constitution was marred with flaws since it was one made that sat down to create it.
He was speaking yesterday in reaction to the calls for the restructuring of the nation.
“The then military leadership under General Abdusalami Abubakar had a rare opportunity of gathering Nigerians together to come up with a document meant to be the constitution, but it was bungled because what happened was that one man just sat down and made sure that the document was written to favour a particular section of the country and he called it the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he said.
“We the people. That statement is a lie. There was never a gathering of any people or group of persons to discuss any constitution.
“Do you also know that the constitution was designed to work against people who are not Muslims as the word Islam, Muslim, Sharia or Mosque was mentioned over 200 times, while the word Christian or Church was never mentioned in the constitution?
And you say that same constitution is meant for all of us?”
