The Senior Pastor of the Citadel Global Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to “tear down” the 1999 Constitution, describing it as the country’s “glorified death certificate.”

Bakare stated this during his ongoing ‘State of the nation’ address at his church headquarters in Lagos.

He traced the nation’s socioeconomic and political challenges to a faulty political foundation, following the destruction of its original political structure by the military.

He reasoned that ethnic, religious and secessionist agitations in the East, West and North were indications that Nigeria was in dire need of restructuring.

According to him, where the next President comes from is not of utmost importance.

Bakare said: “I am fully persuaded that the 1999 constitution is nothing more than a glorified death certificate.”

Addressing President Buhari, he said: “Mr President, stop passing the buck to the National Assembly…Tear down this inhibitive concoction of a constitution. Tear it down so that we can build a nation.”

He lamented that those insisting on the 2023 elections before restructuring, “are putting the cart before horse.”

He warned the President that unless he restructured the country before leaving office, “history will recall that you failed…”

The fiery lawyer and cleric was once President Buhari’s running mate in the presidential poll.
