Parliamentary System: Mixed Reactions trail Lawmakers’ Demand

Mixed reactions have continued to trail the demand by 72 House of Reps members for a bill to re-introduce a parliamentary system of government in Nigeria.
The system was earlier practised in Nigeria between late 1950’s and part of 1960’s and was headed by the late Tafawa Balewa as the Prime Minister while late Nnamdi Azikiwe was the ceremonial President.
Chike Uzoma, an Abuja-based Legal Practitioner, threw his weight behind the system, stating that it was less expensive than the Presidential system currently being practised.
Felix Ukachi, another legal practitioner, said that the problem bedeviling the country had nothing to do with the system of government being practised, but the Politicians running the country.
He said any system of government that would be introduced would be saddled with the same human element problems.
