Dr Olisa Agbakoba

Dr. Olisa Agbakoba, former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, attributes Nigeria’s insecurity and developmental challenges to the flawed 1999 Constitution, emphasizing its lack of legitimacy and validity. He asserts that changing or replacing the constitution is achievable if the National Assembly is committed to its functions.

During an interview in his Lagos office, Agbakoba highlights the need for open discussions on how Nigerians want to coexist, challenging the assumption that all ethnic groups inherently desire unity. Drawing parallels with Yugoslavia, he suggests that the notion of a unified Nigeria may not be sacrosanct, citing ongoing violence in various regions as evidence of underlying issues.
