Primate Ayodele Reveals How Regional Government Will Affect Nigeria
Primate Elijah Ayodele

The Leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele on Tuesday revealed that a regional government will pose a threat to break Nigeria's unity if actualized by the current administration.

According to the statement released by Primate Ayodele's media aide, Oluwatosin Osho, Primate Ayodele revealed that the actualization of the regional system of government will make Nigerian governors too powerful, and will eventually jeopardize the system of ruling Nigeria.

There are tough reactions to a report that the House of Representatives will, next week, transmit a bill to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for assent. The bill is proposing a shift to a regional governance structure in Nigeria, although the lower chamber had denied a leaked draft of the bill titled 'A Bill for an Act to Substitute the Annexure to Decree 24 of 1999 with new governance model for the Federal Republic of Nigeria'

The bill, if assented to by President Bola Tinubu, will introduce a law to be known as "The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria New Governance Model for Nigeria Act 2024.”

The bill’s introduction states that Nigeria has been under the governance of Decree 24 of 1999, imposed by a military government without the people’s consent. It notes the current constitution is not derived from the Nigerian people’s consensus and that there is a call for a constitution based on a federal/regional system.

Reacting to the reported bill, Primate Ayodele said: "Regional government will break Nigeria, weaken the federal government, paralyze local government and empower state governors. Governors who will be regional leaders will become too powerful and there will be elimination of checks and balances.

“There will be too much powers for the governors, it’s not good for the country. A government of national unity is the best which will bring involvement of all parties.”

“The best will be a parliamentary system of government, we need a government of coalition in Nigeria, not a government of political parties.”
