Plateau State governor, Simon Lalong has blasted the persistent agitation for the amendment to the Nigerian constitution.
According to him, doing this is affecting the seamless operation of the document.
Simon, who said this at the opening of the 2019 Law Week of the Nigeria Bar Association, Jos branch added that Nigerians, most especially the legal professionals and elites, should exercise patience until Nigeria starts making governance smooth and effective.
His words, “I make bold to submit that whatever the provisions of the constitution, it is our attitude and level of patriotism that will make it work.
“Let us do all that is necessary to allow the rule of law prevail. Only then can the constitution has any impact on the lives of the citizens.”
“We are building more courts and equipping them. As I speak to you, the new High Court Complex is nearing completion and we hope to inaugurate the furnished complex during the next anniversary of this administration.
“We are also paying attention to the training of lawyers, particularly in our state university in Bokkos, where we are putting infrastructure in place for the Faculty of Law.
“Our Rescue Administration remains faithful to obeying court orders in line with the rule of law and expects that citizens and organisations will do the same for the continued peace and prosperity of our state.”
