Nwabueze said ,“I believe that the problem of this country is transformation. You can’ combine transformation with contesting election. The two are so different because once you get involved in election campaigns, you undermine your authority to lead the for national transformation, and I said if I were the president of Nigeria, I would restrict myself to serving the , transforming the country in creating a new Nigeria, in creating a new society,”
He added,“Nigeria is a wobbly state in part because it stands on a weak foundation, which creates a necessity to transform it. The foundation of a polity or state, that is to say, its super-structure, is its constitution. A polity or state rests on a weak foundation if the source of authority of its constitution, as the supreme law of the land, is not the people directly, acting in a constituent assembly (or a national conference) and a referendum; that is what characterizes a constitution as a democratic one, otherwise called a Peoples’ Constitution”.
President Jonathan ,according to a statement by his spokesman said his government is not opposed to groups discussing how to ensure peace and unity in Nigeria.
