He said the parliamentary system is not only better for the country but “it’s cheaper, less cumbersome, and would enhance stability and easy to run.”

The elder statesman explained that the “parliamentary system is better and cheaper for Nigeria but the presidential system is very costly, especially with the current economic situation in the country.”

Dantata, who was a former member of parliament during the first republic, lauded the members for taking the bold step, and expressed hope that the 60 lawmakers would get more members in the National Assembly to support the project.
