Speaking as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday, Sagay, who is also Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, said that he believes the 1963 Republican constitution contained everything that was currently being agitated for in Nigeria.

He said, “If we had that, with amendments here and there to make it accommodate states rather than regions which we used to have, I think all these agitations will die down and everybody will be happy.”
