Nwuche advocates part time politics in Nigeria

A former deputy speaker of the House of Representatives, Chibudom Nwuche, has called on the political class to make politics a part time business in Nigeria.

Nwuche, who spoke to the Daily Trust newspaper yesterday in Port Harcourt, said the desperation with which politics was being played in Nigeria prompted his call to make it a part time business.

Hon. Nwuche said for pecuniary gains, Nigerian politicians had rendered politics a do or die affair, adding that selfishness had made politicians to give little attention to developmental issues.

He Stated I want to advise politicians to get a second address. What I mean is that politicians should have other things doing; things they would fall back on so that the desperation attached to politics will be reduced.

They must reduce desperation and put efforts at the development of the nation and allow the electoral process to run smoothly; we should not play politics to destroy others, he stressed.

On the hiccups recorded in the ongoing continuous votersí registration exercise, the former deputy speaker urged prospective registrants to be patient saying that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will address the issues.
