The governors also want states to be scrapped. According to the governors, the six states in the geographical zone converted into federating units.

This proposal was contained in a document presented to members of the national assembly from the zone by the governors as part of the review of the 1999 constitution.

The document was dated July 5, 2021, with the title, ‘Proposals for the Review of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (As Amended): Presentation by South-West Governors’ Forum’. According to TheCable.

In the document, the governors asked that sections 3(1) and (3) of the Constitution be amended.

That is the section of the constitution that states that there shall be 36 states in Nigeria. But the governors are demanding a return to northern, western, and eastern regions.

“We propose that Section 3(1) be amended as a federation consisting of six geopolitical zones constituted from the states. The federating units or regions are divided into the following geopolitical zones: North-West Zone, North-Eastern Zone, Middle – Belt Zone, South-East Zone, South-South Zone, South-West Zone and the Federal Capital Territory,” the proposal reads.

“Section 7 of the constitution be amended to include an additional (sub)section prohibiting the dissolution of elected local government councils.
