THE Founder of Household of God Church, Reverend Chris Okotie, has reiterated the need for Nigeria to adopt an interim government after the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) in 2023.
According to him, an interim government is a necessity to guarantee a stable polity in Nigeria.
He made this known in a statement by his Media Adviser, Ladi Ayodeji on Wednesday.
The cleric noted that without fixing some loopholes, conducting elections and transitioning to another government won’t fix the country’s existential challenges.
“A regime change in 2023 will lead the country back to the status quo without restructuring,” the statement quoted Okotie as saying.
He argued that the presidential system of government has failed the nation and should be jettisoned.
“I am offering Aboriginal Democracy as a viable alternative to the present system. It is the only mechanical instrumentality available for the crystalisation of the Nigerian dream.
“The Aboriginal Democracy will eliminate the legislature and end the perpetual conflict between the centrifugal and centripetal forces, which has created the regional xenophobia engendered by the political class,” Okotie said.
According to him, any alternative to this proposition for restructuring before the next general election is an implosion.
“The present constitution is more unitary than federal. We need to change the constitution, we need to restructure the country,” the cleric added.
On the feasibility of an interim government in view of the 2023 general election, Okotie explained that the stakeholders could make it happen if they are patriotic.
The cleric, however, urged the frontline presidential candidates to buy his argument for a hiatus to first create a new constitution before the 2023 general election.
“The constitution is made for the people, and not the people for the constitution,”, Okotie said.
