Chief Whip of the Senate, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu has advised the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the type of government to form during his tenure.
The lawmaker advised Tinubu to consider a government of national unity.
According to him, this would accomodate all interest and calm everyone.
Speaking via Facebook, Kalu disclosed how former president, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua achieved lofty objectives by running a government of national unity.
The former Governor of Abia State went on to urge those unhappy with the outcome of the election to channel their grievances to the court of law.
He wrote: “There is no perfect election in the world and those hitting the polity with flimsy excuses should be careful about how they go about it. The country is built with a system and all grievances should be channeled to appropriate quarters like National Assembly and Judiciary.
“Our democracy has come to stay and we should put more interest in things that would strengthen our democracy rather than disintegrate it. Countries like United States and India fought several years to keep and sustain their democracies and we should endeavor to imitate their style. Nigerians should understand that it is unlawful and unconstitutional to discuss interim government or call for the military to take over power. It is important we guard our utterances no matter how aggrieved we may be about certain issues.
“I also advise that the President-elect , Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu should consider forming a government of national unity. Late President Umaru Musa Yardua formed a national unity by accommodating other opposition parties and it worked. It would also be great to consider the Civil Society Organizations when forming the government as they have continued to play a vital role in the unity and progress of the nation”.
