Hello, Nigerian Constitution? We Have Some Amendments To Suggest

February 20, 2020

The Nigerian Constitution is the most important book in Nigeria. It is the source of all of our laws, and the highest law if any issues come up regarding the lawfulness of a subject.

Which is why, unless you’re an eager-to-please law student/lawyer, you probably have no idea what this book looks like. Who law actually epp in Nigeria?

But since you have a little understanding of the Constitution, it’s easy to see why amendments need to be made every now and again to capture important changes in the country.

Because of that, we jumped and passed some people that don’t really care about us (our lawmakers), to speak directly to the Constitution — man to book.

Here are some amendments to the Nigerian Constitution we think would be great in improving matters of national importance/security:

Can the amended Nigerian Constitution state how many pieces of suya you’re allowed to take when your friend leaves the newspaper open?

We’re thinking start with 5 if it’s ₦ 200 suya and work our way up from there.

The equitable way to deal with Yoruba demons without going to prison deserves a schedule or two in the Nigerian Constitution. Who’s with me?

Might also need to take this matter to the Criminal Code at this point.

An amendment to the 7 PM official time for turning generators on in Nigerian homes.

A lot of us have Ultimate Love to watch after work closes at 5 you know.

If the Nigerian Constitution could get a paragraph or two mandating that Nigerian artists stop the use of ‘baka’ to rhyme with ‘Amaka’ in their lyrics.

It’s an emergency at this point.

We need a maximum number of stories to be posted on Instagram while attending a concert ASAPLY, Constitution.

Five is the magic number, in case anyone was wondering.

We humbly appeal that the Nigerian Constitution intervene in getting Nigerian DJs to stop playing ‘All of me’ at weddings.

Nigerian Constitution please, we’re calling on you! A whole section banning any more talk on who should cook on Nigerian Twitter.

We’re going to need 15 sub-sections listing out punishments for those who disobey. Please @the Criminal Code when you’re through.

Can an amendment be made in the Nigerian Constitution mandating government officials to use only public transportation?

Let them trek, let them see how great danfos are. Absolutely no private jets. Make it happen sis.

If the Nigerian Constitution would kindly find a way to remove the words ‘strongly criticise’ from every Nigerian politician’s mouth.

Especially where they do very little to help make sure the criticised issue isn’t repeated.

But seriously, wouldn’t it be great if the Nigerian Constitution had like a three-strike rule for political leaders?

Nigerian Constitution

Like, say if you don’t make substantial progress towards 25% of your campaign policies within 200 days in office, the length of your tenure gets reduced by 25% and so on. It kind of makes sense. You sef think am.
