In 1999, when former President Olusegun Obasanjo was inaugurated, John Nwodo, the immediate past president of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, said there was no clean copy of the constitution.
Nwodo, a former Education Minister, said that no member of the Federal Executive Council had seen a copy of the constitution.
Speaking on Thursday, the former Ohanaeze President stated that due to the absence of a clean copy of the constitution, the inauguration of the National Assembly was postponed in 1999.
He said: “I was Minister of Information and it was my responsibility to publicise the constitution.
“I never saw a copy of it and never knew who was printing it.
“The National Assembly could not be inaugurated until four days after the President’s inauguration because there was no clean copy of the constitution.”
