Kano businessman, Aminu Dantata, has thrown his weight behind the call for a parliamentary system of government as a solution to Nigeria’s problems.

Dantata stated this on Thursday when he received a team led by the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Kingsley Chinda, at his residence in Kano.

On Wednesday, a group of 60 federal lawmakers proposed an amendment to the 1999 constitution for a departure from the presidential system of government to the parliamentary system of government.

The federal lawmakers on Thursday met with the Kano-based businessman to seek his support.

Dantata, who rarely speaks on political issues in the country, shared his thoughts on the proposal by the lawmakers. He said the parliamentary system of government is the way forward.

The Minority Leader of the House led the team is confident that the parliamentary system of government would bring an end to Nigeria’s challenges.

The lawmakers will consider this endorsement as a major boost in their effort to effect a constitutional change in the country.
