Nigeria should adopt parliamentary system of governance- Gov Aregbesola
Governor of the State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola on Sunday declared that time has come for Nigeria to change its system of government from presidential to parliamentary style because of the expensive nature of the present approach.
Addressing newsmen in Washington, D. C., Ogbeni Aregbesola noted that the parliamentary style of governance should be considered as a viable option to promote effective distribution and use of the nation’s resources.
He added that adoption of the parliamentary system has become imperative to facilitate the reversal to regional style of administration and as a means of reducing the number of states in the country.
The State of Osun governor also canvassed the need to adopt the 1963 constitution because it mostly contains what the nation needs to achieve good federalism.
Ogbeni Aregbesola observed that the 1963 constitution remains the plausible answer for achieving good federalism since Nigeria’s federal structure was destroyed in 1966 after the first military coup.
