Pastor Giwa requests that the regional system of 1963 be reinstated

Adewale Giwa, senior pastor of the ministry Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ, has spoken in favor of regional administration as a means of addressing Nigeria’s problems.

He notably urged national legislators to restore the Republican constitution of 1963, which enabled four areas to be autonomous and govern their own resources.

Giwa told his followers on Sunday in Akure, the capital of Ondo State, that all hands must be on deck to reorganize Nigeria so that each region could control its own resources.

In addition, the cleric accused the National Assembly of ignoring its obligations to uphold good governance in order to serve its own interests.

“If we profess to practice federalism, we will allow for regionalism so that each region may handle what it has,” he stated.

“Let’s implore our political and social leaders to reinstate the Republican constitution of 1963, which established four zones for Nigeria: the Norther, Eastern, Western, and Midwestern.

“At the moment, the local government is governed by the state, while the state is governed by the federal government. There is no longer any local government authority, and the state is now using funds intended for local government while the federal government enslaves the state.

“A local government no longer has jurisdiction over a particular geographic area. The projects intended for local governments are currently being carried out by state governments.

“We cannot advance with this theory; our politicians are aware of this, but they choose to ignore it since the current system benefits them.

“Bring us back to when our currencies were strong, when education was free, when our healthcare system was excellent, and when our economy was growing.”
