Why Tinubu must not meddle in 10th NASS leadership tussle – Alancha
Written by Olarotimi Oshin on May 11, 2023
As the race for the leadership of the 10th National Assembly gathers more steam, Dominic Alancha, a public affairs analyst and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has advised the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, not to meddle in how the lawmakers choose their leaders.
He cautioned that leaving the National Working Committee (NWC) to zone the leadership of the National Assembly may in the long run truncate the independence of the legislative arm of government.
Daily post reports that Alancha, while reacting to the development on Wednesday, also faulted what the NWC referred to as consensus, stressing that what transpired was far from consensus.
According to the public affairs analyst merit was not considered in these zoning arrangements and we are calling on the leadership of the party to reverse this decision.
