Interim Government? What Nigeria Needs – LP Chieftain Onyeizu

Mr Chinedu Onyeizu, a chieftain of the Labour Party (LP) in Abia, says Nigeria only needs to strengthen its democratic institutions to stay on course rather than resort to an Interim National Government.

Onyeizu, who was the LP candidate for Abia South at the Feb.25 National Assembly election, said this when he spoke with newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said forming an interim national government was undemocratic.

He said that institutions like the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Nigeria Police Force should be strengthened to deliver on their mandates.

“I am a democrat. I believe so much in democracy. We don’t have business departing from democracy to any form of government, whether interim or military.

“What we need to do is to strengthen the democratic institutions or institutions of democracy.

“We need to reform INEC and reform the police system in this country, train our policemen; pay them well; so, they can discharge their responsibilities effectively.

“If these two institutions are well reformed and taken care of, the concern of election rigging will be drastically reduced,” he said.
