Proposed Preamble

**Additions/subtractions welcomed**

This is my attempt to get ordinary Nigerians like you and I to be part of the process of shaping the ongoing debate about restructuring, particularly what we want a new constitution for Nigeria to look like.

Below is the Preamble I put together (part of the sentence was taken from Nigeria’s 1999 Constitution). The outcome is shorter and straightforward than that in the 1999 Constitution.
Preamble; Legislative; Executive; Judicial; States; Rights of Nigerians; Land, Mineral & Others; Amendment and Supreme Law are the categories I will be publishing my suggestions under.

Feel free to copy, share, add, subtract and or critic.

Proposed Preamble

We, the people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, having firmly and solemnly resolve to form a more perfect Union do ordain a Constitution for the purposes of promoting freedom, prosperity, justice and consolidating the unity of our people, hereby make, enact and give to ourselves the following Constitution.

End.
