Description

This book is one in the series under the Public Enlightenment Campaign Series (PECS) established to educate the public on their basic rights.

It is true many citizens have not even previously sighted the Constitution, not to talk of reading the contents. And many who have read it find it difficult to understand because of the array of legal jargons.

This book has now simplified the language of the Constitution so you can better understand your constitutional rights to life, fair hearing, liberty, privacy, dignity of your person, freedom of movement, speech, religion, and all other fundamental human rights as guaranteed under the Constitution, with practical application in your day-to-day activities.

 

It is recommended for all citizens.
