What we want from constitutional review

The Coalition of Northern Youth Organizations for National Integration is in full support of constitutional review which is the sole mandate of the National Assembly.

We therefore advise all patriotic Nigerians, whether from the “North or South” to actively participate in all the public hearings, the constitutional review committees will organize in the country.

We have learnt that the constitutional issues to be altered include: immunity, residency and indigeneship, LG autonomy, electoral reforms, Nigeria Police, etc. We don’t believe in boycotts; and we don’t trust any tribal or regional group of gerontocrats can   resolve these issues for many reasons.

In fact, we are equally advising the youth to be careful not to be used as cannon-fodder by the gerontocracy class.

Finally, the stand of this organization over some issues to be reviewed is as follows: removal of immunity for president, vice president, state governors and their deputies. We are in support of LG autonomy. We don’t support the creation of State police that can be used to brutalize citizens, minorities, opposition, etc. The central government should be strengthened. State citizenship (Indigeniety) should be abolished. Make fundamental objectives and directive principles of state policy as well as all fundamental human rights and duties justiciable.
