Former interim national chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bisi Akande, has called for the scrapping of the presidential system of government that Nigeria is practicing.
He said that the multi-party parliamentary democracy is the best form of government that Nigeria should adopt to move forward.
Akande made the call at a news conference in his home country, Ila Orangun, to mark his 73rd birthday anniversary.
The parliamentary system, according to him is too complicated and costly for a country that is poor and with large illiteracy like Nigeria.
The former APC national chairman also described the system that Nigeria is practicing as a military democracy of sharing, which according to him cannot take Nigeria.
“President Buhari is my friend and I want him to succeed but he is running a difficult system of government.
“Nigeria’s democracy is a military democracy of sharing and if we continue like this, there is no how we can succeed.
“Up to this present age, evidence based analyses has proven parliamentary democracy to be the most accountable and transparent form of government in the whole world,’’ he said.
