Did you know? The Nigerian Constitution + rights and freedoms

The 1999 constitution restored democratic rule to Nigeria [yet again], and remains in force today.
www.nigeria-law.org/ConstitutionOfTheFederalRepublicOfNigeria.htm

The Nigerian ideal, as expressed is the Constitution, is really wonderful:
14.2(a)  sovereignty belongs to the people
14.2(b)  the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government:
17.1  The State social order is founded on ideals of Freedom, Equality and Justice.
for example.  More rights here

On the other hand, the reality is that too many are unsafe, poor, and even oppressed. 
Furthermore, the document as drafted is not gender-neutral, it is not gender blind, it mentions marriage and 'woman', and uses 'he' when I presume it means me, you, and others who may not be male. 
See Sections 26 - 29 for instance. 
Citizenship can be gained by marrying a Nigerian male but not by marrying a Nigerian female?  Why?  I reject this asymmetry. 

What do you love / dislike about the Constitution of Nigeria?
