Akeredolu Wants Senate Scrapped, Canvasses Part-time Assembly

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has called for a unicameral legislature for Nigeria.

Speaking at the Akure Centre of the South-West Zonal Public Hearing on the constitution review, on Tuesday, the governor said the upper chamber of the National Assembly should be scrapped to reduce the cost of governance.

He also said the National Assembly should function on a part-time basis

The governor was represented by his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

“The position of the Ondo State Government has been made public. We advocate for a Federal Government largely reduced in size and scope of engagement. We want to see a Constitution that will enhance the performance of public office holders at all levels.“It is possible to have a government that will serve the people in deed and truth. The law of the land must aid this realistic expectation. We must reduce the cost of governance and shift attention to service delivery in this trying period.
