Popular legal icon and founder of Afe Babalola University(ABUAD), Chief Afe Babalola has said the present Nigerian constitution is not adequate enough to end the problems facing the nation.
He shared this today in Ado-Ekiti during his conferment with the Africa Role Model and AU Agenda 2063 Ambassadorial Award by the African Union.
He added that the 1999 constitution was antithetical to the development and progress of Nigeria due to the loopholes inherent in its operational legal framework.
His words, “It is a tragedy that Africa today is bereft of transformational leaders such as Ghandi, Kwame Nkrumah, Nnamdi Azikwe, Obafemi Awolowo, Nelson Mandella and Ahmadu Bello
“For Africa to move forward, we need transformational leaders and not operators of 1999 Constitution.
”The renaissance has started in ABUAD. ABUAD is the clear leader in reformation of education. We have succeeded in nine years to transform education in the country.”
