60 Lawmakers Seek Return to Parliamentary System

About 60 members of the Federal House of Representatives are currently seeking amendments to the 1999 Constitution to transition from the current presidential system to the parliamentary system of government.

Led by a lawmaker representing Lagos State under the All Progressives Congress, Wale Raji, the lawmakers identified the need for reducing the cost of governance, and robust policy debates among others as some of the reasons for demanding a return to the parliamentary system.
