A delegate, Dr Phillips Salau, at the ongoing National Conference on Wednesday in Abuja advocated a part-time unicameral legislature to reduce the cost of governance in the country.
Salau, representing North-Central zone, also advocated that the number of ministers, commissioners, special advisers, supervisors and other aides, should be cut down to reduce cost of governance.
He said, “The presidential system is still the better option for our plural, heterogeneous polity. However, part-time unicameral legislature is advocated to reduce cost of governance.
“For the executive arm of government, the number of ministers, commissioners, special advisers, supervisors and other aides should be pegged to also reduce cost of governance.”
Salau further called for completion of the Ajaokuta Steel Company and the Itakpe Iron Ore Project to enhance industrialisation in the country.
He said the companies would provide employment opportunities for some jobless Nigerians.
