A presidential aspirant on the platform of All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Charles Udeogaranya, yesterday, made a case for the office of a prime minister in Nigeria, saying that events under President Muhammadu Buhari strongly call for such.
According to him in an encounter with Vanguard, “Though our constitution did not provide for the office of a prime minister, events under President Muhammadu Buhari strongly call for such. This in simple term means the president should table his vision while the prime minister coordinates
“In many cases, people with great vision don’t always have what it takes to get power and people with what it takes to get power don’t always have a vision or successful plan.
“Secondly, while a president maybe elected for four years, a prime minister can only be appointed to perform and where the prime minister falls short of this, he maybe replaced at any given time based on poor performance.This will reduce pressure on president and ease the heat on the polity.
“Mr. president can actually create an office of a coordinator of his government pending when Nigeria gets her constitution amended.”
