There has been a debate at many levels on the type of party system Nigeria should adopt in order to achieve a better democracy in the country.
The House of Representatives have rejected the 2-party system likewise some top politicians with the arguement that it negates the law of freedom of association. This arguement i see as selfish on the part of the politicians because Nigeria has been practising this multi-party system and it has not yielded any good result other than producing one stong party and numerous weak ones. It is also a way the politicians get their own portion of the national cake as they recieve allocations from the federal govt.
In my opinion, a 2-party system which can produce 2 strong political parties is what Nigeria needs at this time. 2 parties that can compete favourable with each other, or a multi party with a maximum of 3 or 4 political parties should be adpoted.
Nigeria is not yet mature for this present multi- party system and it has continued to make a caricature of our democracy.
We just need one other strong party, a party that can compete intensely with PDP. If not, PDP will continue to rule this country and continue to swallow up some other weaker ones until we have a one party system which is dangerous for this nation.
The politicians have said their own, but what do the youth of this country think?
