The Founder of Household of God Church, Reverend Chris Okotie, has stated that the 2023 presidential election will not produce the change desired by Nigerians.

Okotie, who said this during an interview with the Silverbird TV, insisted that meaningful change could only happen after the country undergoes restructuring.

This was contained in a statement made available to The PUNCH on Tuesday.

The interim government campaigner said, “There’s nothing the incoming government would do that hasn’t been done before.”

According to him, only restructuring can produce any meaningful change in Nigeria’s political dynamics.

This has been the core of Okotie’s campaign for the setting up of an Interim Government.

Okotie said, “To continue with this transition is to wallow in the miasma of political degeneration. Therefore,this is the auspicious time to restructure the country, otherwise, Nigeria faces the risk of disintegration.

“We must come together to discuss how we can have true nationhood. How to go forward because we have no other nation.

“The reality we face shows that the Presidential system is not the way to go because it breeds corruption, mismanagement and personal aggrandizement.

“We have tried the Westminster system. It didn’t work. Let us do our own thing, which is Aboriginal Democracy; a system that guarantees inclusiveness and mass participation.”

Okotie insisted that if Nigeria adopt interim government, the country will device a system that suits its culture.
