An elder statesman and a prominent politician in Edo State Dr. Emmanuel Igiebor has revealed a divine message allegedly received from the ancestors concerning Nigeria and her political development.
Addressing newsmen in Benin City Dr. Emmanuel Igiebor said it has been revealed to him that the amalgamation of the Northern and Southern protectorates did not favour four geopolitical zones out of the six geo-political zones in Nigeria today.
Dr. Igiebor who said he was only being used as a tool by the ancestors to deliver the message to Nigerians and its leaders explained that Nigeria needs to be restructured into new zones, to bring about fairness, equity and justice.
The elder statesman said the 1999 constitution died with the one hundred years centenary of the amalgamation of the Northern and
Southern protectorates, pointing out that there is no “Valid” Constitution at present for the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
He said a brand new Federal Republican Constitution must be put in place for Nigeria to have a credible election going into the future.
To achieve this, Dr. Igiebor said the outcome of the 2014 Constitutional Conference must be fine-tuned and implemented before any election.
He further clarified that the postponement of the general elections from February 14th and 28th 2015 was not the making of any political party, person or groups, but a divine intervention of the ancestors. Dr. Igiebor explained that the ancestors are speaking through President Goodluck Jonathan for the transformation agenda being pursued by the President.
The elder statesman and Ambassador of Peace urged the National Assembly to set aside all forms of sentiments and obey the yearning and aspirations of Nigerians by surrendering to a genuine process that will allow for enactment and proclamation of a new Federal Republican Constitution for Nigeria.
