Obasanjo was sworn into office with ‘nonexistent’ constitution in 1999, says Nwodo


Chief John Nwodo



Immediate past President of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Chief John Nwodo has said that former President Olusegun Obasanjo was sworn into office as President in 1999 with a constitution which nobody had seen.



Nwodo who was Information Minister under the Abdulsalami Abubakar government said even though he was a member of the Federal Executive Council, no member of the council saw a copy of the 1999 constitution before the Obasanjo government was inaugurated.



He said the constitution was drafted by 47 persons appointed by the then Head of State, 40 of which were military officers to draft the constitution.



He said: “I was Minister of Information and it was my responsibility to publicise the constitution. I never saw a copy not it and never knew who was printing it. The National Assembly could not be inaugurated until four days after the President’s inauguration because there was no clean copy of the constitution.”
