The Speaker of Kwara House of Assembly, Dr Ali Ahmad, on Thursday urged governments and political officer holders to uphold the rule of law always for meaningful democracy and egalitarian society.
Ahmad made the call at the backdrop of current political developments in the country.
He told Daily Times in an exclusive interview in Ilorin that non-adherence to democratic tenets and rule of law was accountable for the crisis.
The speaker said that one of the drawbacks in the system was prevalent cases of abuse of human rights.
According to him, if the rule of law is followed to the letter, the nation’s democracy will bring more merits than what the nation is currently witnessing.
