The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has revealed that a regional government will break the unity of Nigeria.

Primate Ayodele made his position known in a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, on Tuesday.

He made it known that a regional system of government will give governors too much power and will not turn out well for the country.

He stated that it will weaken the federal government, paralyse local government, but place too much powers in the hands of regional leaders, who will be governors.

He said: Regional government will break Nigeria, weaken the federal government, paralyse local government and empower state governors.

β€œGovernors who will be regional leaders will become too powerful and there will be elimination of checks and balances.

β€œThere will be too much powers for the governors, it’s not good for the country.

β€œA government of national unity is the best which will bring involvement of all parties.”

The cleric, who has always clamoured for restructuring, stated that the best way it could be done is by running a parliamentary system of government, which can ensure national unity among all parties in the country.

Ayodele stated that Nigeria needs a government of coalition and not a system of political parties.

He said: β€œThe best will be a parliamentary system of government, we need government of coalition in Nigeria, not government of political parties.”
