The founder of the Household of God Church, Rev. Chris Okotie, has reiterated that Nigeria must adopt an interim government after the regime of the president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (Retd.) in 2023.

According to him, an interim government is a necessity to ensure a stable polity in Nigeria.

He made this known in a statement from his media adviser, Ladi Ayodeji, made available to The PUNCH on Wednesday.

The cleric noted that holding elections and transitioning to another government will not solve the country’s existential challenges without closing some loopholes.

“A regime change in 2023 will return the country to the status quo without restructuring,” Okotie said in a statement.

He argued that the presidential system of government has let the nation down and should be jettisoned.

“I offer Aboriginal Democracy as a viable alternative to the current system. It is the only mechanical instrument available for the crystallization of the Nigerian dream.

“Aboriginal Democracy will eliminate the legislature and end the eternal conflict between the centrifugal and centripetal forces, which have caused the regional xenophobia caused by the political class,” Okotie said.

In his view, any alternative to this restructuring proposal before the next general election is an implosion.

“The current constitution is more unitary than federal. We have to change the constitution, we have to restructure the country,” the cleric added.

On the feasibility of an interim government ahead of the 2023 general election, Okotie explained that the stakeholders could make it happen if they are patriotic.

However, the cleric urged frontline presidential candidates to buy his argument for a pause to first create a new constitution before the 2023 general election.

“The constitution was made for the people, not the people for the constitution,” Okotie said.
