Allow Legislators Choose their Leaders, NANS tells APC

by on June 8, 2015

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), has urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) to allow legislators to choose their leaders in a democratic manner.

In a statement signed by NANS’ President, Tijani Usman, yesterday, NANS said the legislators should be given a free hand to decide those with impeccable credentials to lead the National Assembly.

“Nigerians are in a hurry to witness the change promised by the APC. The party should not allow itself to be entangled in issues that do not portend well for the polity.

“The party must desist from trying to have overbearing influence on the legislature, including choosing its leaders.

“Allow Senators and Members of the House of Representatives to elect their leaders in a free and transparent process.

“Agreed, the APC is the majority, but other political parties also have a say in who emerges. Therefore, let the process be devoid of interference from political parties’’, the statement said.
