A member of the House of Representatives, Mr Kinsley Chinda (PDP-Rivers), says adopting parliamentary system will help reduce corruption and address frictions among different arms of government in Nigeria.

Chinda, who led 71 other lawmakers to sponsor a bill aimed at reverting the county to parliamentary system at the House in December 2018, disclosed this while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Tuesday.

He said the idea was out of the need to curb frictions and ensure synergy among arms of government.

According to him, “If you ask some legislators of some government policies, it is difficult for them to clearly understand because the interface between the executive and the legislature is not as it should be.

“The parliamentary system will ensure that the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary are on the same page.

“The system will iron out all these things; that is why we have thrown it up for Nigerians to look at, discuss and see that it will help us in proffering solutions to some of the problems of our country,’’ he said.

Chinda added that there was need to try something else away from the presidential system as the cost of governance was too high for the country.
