I am ok with presidential system, says Alex Ekwueme

Independence Day Special Publication

*I am not advocating for a parliamentary system. I am ok with the presidential system, but it doesn’t have to have two chambers with full-time legislators assigned with a lot of staff, having staff at home and staff in Abuja.

*You cannot have situations where people can come and roughshod over peoples’ farms, rape their women in the guise that they are herdsmen or when you wake up, then go to church and start bombing people.

You have to be one both in reality and in spirit and action.

But if you have reasonable autonomy, if you have delegated a lot of responsibilities to the federating units as we had in the First Republic, you will find that development will go at a faster pace and areas of conflict will be minimised – Dr. Alex Ekwueme, former Vice President of Nigeria speaks om on how the country can be great again in our October 1 special publication.
