AKURE – Rotimi Akeredolu, the governor of Ondo State says the idea where the federal government is the only one dictating almost everything has to be attended to through constitutional provisions.
The governor spoke in Akure while declaring the open the ongoing two-day constitution review exercise by the Senate Committee on the review of the 1999 Constitution.
He said “We can’t continue like this. The practice of where the federal government is the one dictating everything has to stop”.
“I agree with the deputy speaker of Ekiti State House of Assembly who said the 1963 constitution is the best constitutional document the country has ever produced”.
“Let’s go back to where sub-government take over what is in their domains and pay royalty to the federal government”.
“Cocoa house, the then tallest building in Africa. The first stadium started here. The first television station started here. Let each state work on their comparative advantages to grow”.
“Every state has it’s own character, let’s embrace it”.
“The decision we had taken at the southern governors’ meeting at Asaba remains irreversible. We will pursue it without going back”.
“The federal government must drop part of the loads and power ascribed to itself. It is not sustainable”.
You want to register farmers; the federal government. Rain and erosion destroy people’s properties; NEMA will be sending down sub-standard materials here and there, the governor said.
