Kalu Advocates Unicameral Legislature For Nigeria
Former Abia governor, Dr Orji Kalu, has insisted that Nigeria should adopt unicameral legislature as the present arrangement is economically wasteful.
Kalu who stated this on Sunday in Abuja, said the two chambers of the National Assembly should be collapsed into one for effective performance, and wealth creation.
The former governor, who is a chieftain of the All Progressives Party (APC), stressed that bicameral legislature has no benefit or advantage to the people, stressing that it had only succeeded in wasting the country’s resources over the years.
“People still see politics as a business; something like the National Assembly should be on part time basis.
“One of the houses of the National Assembly should be abolished, either the Senate or the House of Representatives.
“Nigeria is not capable of having the two houses because it is too expensive,’’Kalu said.
