Legal luminary Afe Babalola says Nigeria should suspend plans for the 2023 general elections and opt for a stop-gap interim government.
Babalola, who is also a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), made the proposal at a media briefing held at the Afe Babalola University in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.
He raised fears that using the current Constitution to conduct another election in Nigeria would only reproduce the faulty leadership and system being experienced in the country.
In a bid to prevent Nigeria from slipping into such a situation, the legal icon stressed that a new constitution has become an urgent need.
