Akeredolu while stating this at the Akure Centre of the South West Zonal Public Hearing on the constitution review stated that the upper chamber of the National Assembly should be scrapped while the Assembly should be on a part-time basis to reduce the cost of governance.
Represented by his deputy Lucky Aiyedatiwa, he stated that, “The position of the Ondo State Government has been made public. We advocate for a Federal Government largely reduced in size and scope of engagement. We want to see a Constitution that will enhance the performance of public office holders at all levels.”
He disclosed that, “It is possible to have a government that will serve the people in deed and truth. The law of the land must aid this realistic expectation. We must reduce the cost of governance and shift attention to service delivery in this trying period.”
He also stressed that, “Legislators should earn under a uniform salary structure. Allowance peculiarities must not be about obscenity. The Senate should be scrapped. The House of Representatives too should not be unwieldy. A maximum of four representatives should come from each zone.”
