Osun State Governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola has said that the Parliamentary System adopted for local governments in the state is in line with the nation’s constitution.


The Governor said his administration adopted the Parliamentary System to deepen democracy and entrench genuine democratic practice at grassroots in fulfillment of the wish of the people of the state.


He said this at the swearing-in ceremony for newly elected Councillors representing various wards in the Local Governments, Local Council Development Areas, Area Councils and Administrative Offices across the state.


Aregbesola said the experience in the First Republic indicated that to the parliamentary system deepens democracy and offers far greater political representation and governance effectiveness than any other system.


The governor posited that the decision to adopt parliamentary system of government was also in fulfilment of Section 7 (1) of the Nigerian constitution.


He explained that the action of the state government to resolve at the new system is not in anyway against the constitution or contrary to the tenets of democracy but rather helps to galvanize good governance and effective representation.


According to him, "parliamentary system is more democratic, compared to the executive, in that the executive system tends towards dictatorship, arbitrariness and absolutism since power is concentrated in one man’s hand, with little or no check."


He added, ‎"our decision is not against the constitution and parliamentary system is as democratic as you can ever get."
