A former attorney to several Heads of State in Nigeria, Robert Clarke, SAN, says Nigeria’s 1999 constitution is a “rotten egg” because it was not “made by the people or was it made for the people”.
The octogenarian who made this comment on Tuesday, June 12 on “Political Stew“, a live political talk show on Television Continental anchored by Sulaiman Aledeh, stressed that the 1999 constitution can “never serve the purpose of helping the people”.
Clarke noted that after eighteen (18) years of running the 1999 constitution in the country it has not helped Nigerians.
The legal luminary, who has enjoyed over forty-five (45) years at the bar, stressed that Nigeria and all her manufacturing organizations are all worse off than they were in 1999.
His words: “The 1999 constitution we have is a rotten egg, it is not a constitution made by the people or was it made for the people and so, therefore, it can never serve the purpose of helping the people and we have seen it today after 18 years of running this constitution, it has not helped you and I”, Clarke said.
“We are worse off than we were in 1999. All our manufacturing organizations are all worse off than they were in 1999.
“The only thing we have seen in Nigeria today is that individuals overnight are becoming so rich and they are factually doing what government should have done”, the octogenarian added.
