Foremost Nigerian standup comedian Ali Baba has hinted that the Nigerian constitution should be reviewed for a new phase of the country to emerge.
Alibaba spoke on an Instagram live session, ‘Ask Alibaba 60 questions’.
The veteran comedian said: “If we do not sort out our constitution or how regions make money and take care of themselves, we are not going anywhere. This means that somebody can be in Yobe and be expecting that the money from Bayelsa or Rivers State is what will develop their state instead of internally generated revenue.”
Speaking further during the interaction with fans, Alibaba gave his opinion on the Central Bank of Nigeria’s decision on bureau de change.
Alibaba said: “The Central Bank of Nigeria withdrew the licences and has said that all bureau de change transactions should go through banks, I think they can monitor banks a lot more than bureau de change. Most bureaux de change are just glorified mallams,” he said.
