This research examines the autochthonous nature of Nigerian Constitution with a view to demystifying the impolitic call for peoples’ constitution in Nigeria. Further, the research examines whether legitimacy and effectiveness of a constitution are linked to the way it was made. The research continues to examine whether there is purely autochthonous constitution and its relevance to the attainment of dividends of democracy and argues that the making of a constitution plays no role in the enthronement of good governance. The paper suggests ways of entrenching good governance in the country.
