An Appraisal of 1999 Constitution of Nigeria and J.j. Rousseau's "General Will"

An Appraisal of 1999 Constitution of Nigeria and J.j. Rousseau's "General Will"

In line with Jean Jacques Rousseau, sovereignty is reposed on the masses and not a few political elite or the Leviathan. It is, in his opinion, the will of the generality of masses that inhabit a state that should determine how laws are made to checkmate arbitrary behaviours of the "bad ones" in a state. However, the 1999 constitution of Nigeria does not tally with Rousseau's principle as it was made by undemocratic few (the military men) without adequate consultations. It is in line with the above that we say that the 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is an aberration of the General Will.
