Abuja - The National Chairman, Progressive People’s Alliance (PPA) Mr Sam Nkire, on Wednesday pledged his support to the call by the ACN leader Bola Tinubu for the scrapping of the Senate.
This is contained in a statement made available to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
Nkire stated that the scrapping of the Senate would go a long way to reduce cost which would be ploughed to programmes that would improve the social and economic condition of the people.
``The Federal Government will be deceiving Nigerians if it says that it has difficulty knowing how and where to cut the cost of running government
He said the government must also find ways of reducing cost of running its programmes, not only from the legislature but also from the executive and the judiciary.
Nkire also stressed the need for the reorganisation of the three tiers of government with a view to reducing their size, save cost to ensure that they performed effectively.
He said that government officials needed not wait for more Nigerians to die of hunger, killed or displaced before realising the need to cut down on high cost government expenditure.
