Ifeanyi Okowa, the Governor of Delta State, has stated that the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria was a major problem.
He spoke in Asaba while reiterating his call for restructuring.
Okowa, at the launch of a book by Michael Tidi, Warri South Local Government Chairman, also repeated South-South’s demand for resource control.
The governor told the people of the region to stop playing politics with critical issues.
“Recently in Port Harcourt, we called for resource control and restructuring because the constitution as it is now, cannot develop the country.
“I hear people asking what the governors have done with the 13 per cent derivation? Give us 100 per cent, and we can pay you tax of 50 per cent,” Okowa told the federal government.
