Constitution Review: Atiku Calls for Two-party System, State Police
The former vice president stated this position in a paper he presented to the Senate Committee on Review of the 1999 Constitution which began its public hearing on Thursday at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.
The former number two man in Nigeria also called for the return of a two-party system as way forward, if Nigeria must get it right democratically. He further called for a full scale activation of the six geopolitical zones as centre of power and governance, adding that such arrangement would help to reduce the “harmful tension, bickering and competition for power at the centre.”
Defending his stance on the issue of state police, the former vice president’s advice, contained in a four-page paper, stated that the state police, if introduced, “will guarantee security of lives and property and create an enabling environment for our different people to develop at their own pace.”
