Senate Should Be Scrapped, Nigeria Can Do Without it — Fayemi

Senate Should Be Scrapped, Nigeria Can Do Without it — Fayemi

Kayode Fayemi

Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, has said that Nigeria should scrap the senate as all the country actually needs is a unicameral legislature.

The governor made the remark at the just concluded 25th edition of the Nigerian Economic Summit Group conference.

He stated that Nigeria has to look into the size of government.

According to him, “We do need to look at the size of government in Nigeria and I am an advocate of a unicameral legislature. What we really need is the house of representatives because that is what represents”.

“You have three senators from little Ekiti and you have three senators from Lagos state. It’s a no-brainer that it’s unequal, I guess the principle is not proportionality but that if you are a state, you get it automatically but I think that we can do away with that. There are several things that we can do away within the government.

“The Oronsaye report that proposed mergers of several MDAs that are doing the same thing is something that the government should pay serious attention to and reduce the resources being expended on them,” he said.

We report that the Nigeria’s national assembly consists of a senate with 109 members and a 360-member house of representatives.
