The National Secretary of All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), Alhaji Tijanni Tumsa, says constitution review will give Nigerians the opportunity to contribute their ideas for the overall interest of the nation.
Tumsa, who made the remarks in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Monday, said the exercise usually happened in the history of every nation.
He said there was no way a country could be undergoing a constitutional amendment without requiring the inputs of its citizens.
He said it was a very good exercise and hoped that it would be done as prescribed by the same constitution.
Similarly, Tumsa said the party had constituted a seven-man committee chaired by Alhaji Ibrahim Shekarau, to hold discussions with other opposition parties to facilitate merger with other parties.
“CPC and ACN are very good political parties to merge with and the process has already commenced, we are hoping that it will come to reality very soon.
We are also into discussions with other opposition political parties with the aim of forming a formidable force to wrest power from the ruling party,” he said.
On the state of the economy, he urged the Federal Government to embark on aggressive economic policies that had direct bearing on the life of the people.
He also urged the Federal Government to tackle poverty and corruption headlong in order to alleviate the suffering of the masses.
The scribe advised the government to always carry out long term economic plans and not to wait for an issues to arise before coming up with laudable projects.
If the government plans to achieve a particular result, it will get it if, it has policies that are in line with achieving the desired goals,” he said.
He, however, urged the Federal Government to strengthen all the institutions and make them functional if our quest to be one of the best countries in the world would come through.
