Prof. Auwalu Yadudu, a lecturer, Department of Law, Bayero University, Kano has advised the National Assembly and the Presidency to resolve their lingering feud in the interest of peace and unity of the country.
Yadudu gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano on Saturday.
He added that the quick resolution of the crisis would also ensure harmonious working relationship between the two arms of government.
He noted that the conflict between the two arms of government was not unusual in democracy, especially in presidential system.
The lecturer, therefore, called on Nigerians to desist from making unnecessary comments on issues as such disagreements between the two arms of government, in order not to heat the polity.
The don, however, stressed the need for the two arms to deliberate on the contentious issues and resolve them in the interest of the country.
“The two arms of government should discuss the contentious issues and sort them out, if not, the Supreme Court is there to interpret the issues for them,” he said.
Yadudu said the problem was caused by different opinions as to the role of the presidential system and the powers of each arm of government.
On the issue of Mr Ibrahim Magu, the Acting Chairman EFCC, Yadudu advised the National Assembly to go and challenge the issue at the court of law.
