Until we change constitution, we’re doomed – Emeritus Archbishop

Archbishop Felix Job

The Emeritus Archbishop of the Catholic Diocese of Ibadan, Oyo State, Felix Job, has attributed some of the challenges in the country to bad leadership, adding that Nigeria is doomed with the 1999 Constitution.

He stated this on the sideline of the Nigeria Association of Church History and Missionlogical Studies 2022 Conference and Distinguished Honorary Fellowship Induction/Awards, held at the University of Ibadan, Ibadan, on Tuesday.

He said, “Those who govern Nigeria are the cause of the problems plaguing this nation in different ways.  Until we change our system of government and Constitution, we are doomed. Let us not deceive ourselves, until we change our 1999 Constitution, we are doomed. I am more than 51 years as a bishop. From the beginning, our government said we are a secular state.

“Check the present constitution, how many times was Islam mentioned and how many times was Islamic teachers mentioned? How many times was Sharia mentioned? Is Christianity mentioned just once? The present constitution that is supposed to govern all of us. I am not against Muslims because I have them as my own family members. I also have Christians of different sorts in my family.

“Let’s be frank, I have said it that the major problem of Nigeria is the constitution we are adopting and if we don’t change it, we are only deceiving ourselves. We are mocking the reality of life.”
