Forget all the noise you hear from RAILA, UHURU has the final say on whether we’ll go to referendum or not-Ahmednassir Abdullahi

Thursday October 18, 2018-Celebrated City Lawyer, Ahmednasir Abdullahi, has weighed in on the ongoing referendum debate and Opposition leader Raila Odinga, who has been spearheading the renewed push for constitutional amendment, may not be impressed.

According to Abdullahi, Raila would not determine whether or not Kenyans would go to another referendum to change the Constitution.

Speaking during an interview on Jeff Koinange Live Show that airs on Citizen TV, Abdullahi said President Uhuru Kenyatta had all the powers to decide which way Kenyans would go as far as the referendum issue is concerned and not Raila.

 "Raila has no say, in my view, whether we will have a referendum or not, but if Uhuru says we will have a referendum then Kenyans will listen," Ahmednassir argued.

Nonetheless, the city lawyer joined the Deputy President William Ruto’s camp in opposing the referendum to expand the Executive as suggested by Raila.

"The Constitution needs some editing but in terms of changing the basic structure of the constitution I am opposed to that.”

“We do not need a referendum that will change the basic structure of the constitution," he said.
