Remi Sonaiya, 2015 presidential candidate of KOWA party, has called for a radical system change in government that will enable Nigeria to channel its resources towards top sectors of the economy.

Expressing her displeasure on the situation of the country, the retired professor of French and Applied Linguistics submitted that since there is no more money to import foods into the country, farmers should be encouraged to farm.

Sonaiya said in the same vein, Nigeria should cut waste and channel her resources to sectors like health and education that are in dire need of reformation.

The retired academician described as a waste of public funds the operation of a bicameral legislature in the country, saying the money invested on legislature alone should have been directed to other important sectors.

Bicameralism is a system where two legislative chambers are being operated in a country, i.e Houses of Representatives and Senate in the case of Nigeria.

"President Muhammadu Buhari has claimed we have no more money for food imports - so farmers should go & farm!

"Given our obvious needs in the health, education & other sectors, there's a lot more we shouldn't have money for anymore. e.g. Wasteful Bicameral Legislature," the former presidential candidate submitted in a tweet on Twitter on Thursday, May 28.
