A former presidential candidate and an apostle of restructuring, Rev Chris Okotie, has broken his silence after a brief silence following the general elections.

Speaking through his media adviser, Ladi Ayodeji in Lagos on Sunday, Okotie said the fierce contests and contentions between politicians before, during and after the polls, justify his call for a new constitution.

He is canvassing what he calls TOKO (The Okotie Option) as a template that could bring about the Nigerian Reformation.

According to him, the reformation is anchored on four major components: Reconciliation, Reconstruction, Solidarity and a new foundation for development.

Okotie insists that adhoc amendments of the constitution as being proposed by some would not lead to any serious reformation because the current constitution upon which the general election was held, has only produced greater division in the polity as being experienced.

The priest lamented that his warning that the country should be restructured before the election was to avoid post election crisis and create the right atmosphere for a peaceful development of Nigeria.

While promising that the TOKO campaign would continue, he urged Nigerians to take part in the National Dialogue he is promoting to engender equity, peace and prosperity of Nigeria.

Rev. Okotie asked the political gladiators to sheath their sword and come to the Round table to fashion out how to restructure the country.
