The Deputy President of the Senate, Chief Ike Ekweremadu, has called for parliamentary system of government in the country, saying that the current presidential system is too expensive and cumbersome.
Ekweremadu spoke, during a parliamentary session of the Enugu West People’s Assembly in Udi Local Government, Enugu State, where opportunities were given to the people in the grassroots to interact and ask the leadership of the Senatorial District to give account of their stewardship.
He explained that the Enugu West Parliamentary session was an example of democracy in action, which would enable everyone to air his or her opinions, ask questions and demand answers. According to him, “the parliamentary system of government will engender more robust debates which always brings out the best in a democracy.”
