Presidency/Senate feud threatens democracy – CSOs

About 15 civil society groups have flayed both the presidency and legislature for allowing the crisis between them to heat up the polity nationwide.

They said the lingering and recurrent leadership crisis that hit the Senate since 1999 had “developed into a threat to the democratic system”.

The executive director of Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC), Auwal Musa Rafsanjani, who delivered the coalition’s statement, recalled that at least three Senate presidents and a speaker of the House of Representatives had been removed by 2014.

Musa said since 2015, the crisis between the executive and legislature had hindered  both arms of government in performing their statutory functions.

He lamented the crises were caused by “narrow intra- and inter-party partisan interests rather than legislative priorities aimed at promoting good governance.”

He said the on-going feud had no bearing on issues that concerned Nigerians, describing it as “reckless self-serving behaviour of politicians” who were only concerned with exercising power without responsibility.
