Nigeria's Current State Should Be A Shame On Our Political Leaders - CAN President

Nigeria's Current State Should Be A Shame On Our Political L

Commenting on the current state of the nation, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has said that the current state of the country should be a shame on the country's political leaders.

This was posited by the president of the association, Samson Ayokunle, in a statement, in Abuja, stating that the country should seek a reversal to the Parliamentary system of government or look into a cost-effective Presidential system.

Ayokunle said, “If it’s too late to return to the Parliamentary system of government, then, we should practise a Presidential system that will not be as expensive as the one we are practising. We may borrow a leaf from Ghana and France in doing this. 

“The current state of Nigeria should be a shame on our political leaders and the rest of us who have not done our best in various places of leadership, including those who governed us during the military misadventure to power.

“They have, obviously, failed to invest in the future of Nigeria, hence the collapsed infrastructures everywhere. They failed to build enduring institutions, instead enriching themselves at the expense of the dreams of the founding fathers of the country.

“Our electoral system has remained far from being free, fair, and credible because of thuggery, godfather syndrome and the use of law enforcement agents to intimidate voters in order to win election.

“Additionally, government should revisit the 2014 National Conference Report with a view to using it to address some problems militating against the peace and unity of the country. 

“We don’t need another conference if there’s a political will to implement the 2014 Confab report. It should just be sent to the National Assemblies as template to guide legislative process of better repositioning of Nigeria.”
