A delegate at the ongoing National Conference, Dr Phillips Salau, on Wednesday in Abuja advocated a part-time unicameral legislature to cut down 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 drastically reduced to cut down 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, who was a former deputy governor of Kogi State, further called for speedy completion of the Ajaokuta Steel Company and the Itakpe Iron Ore Project, both in Kogi, to enhance industrialisation in the country.
He said upon completion, the companies would create employment opportunities for some jobless Nigerians.
