Conflict in NASS normal in democracy – APC chieftain



Chief Ademola Oladaiye, a senatorial aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, has described the crisis rocking the National Assembly as normal in any democracy, especially in developing countries.

Oladaiye, who spoke through a statement on Saturday, maintained that the ability of stakeholders to resolve such conflicts make democracy thick.


Stressing that such crises were critical index of representative democracy, he added that the dark side of any conflict situation was when parties were stubbornly holding to their lines of defence and refusing to embrace compromise.

Oladaiye, who maintained that compromise was an important ingredient of conflict resolution, advised parties to shift their ground in the national interest.

Also, Mr. Steve Alabi, a legal practitioner, described the crisis as needless, adding that it was unthinkable that legislators would leave their main duty of making laws for the overall development of the country and concentrate on personal considerations.

He said: “It is these personal interests that are responsible for the endless fight in the hallowed chambers, and against the Executive arm.

“There is no doubt that the distrust among the lawmakers will hamper their duties. The lack of unity is however not in respect of their duty. Rather, it is on account of their personal interests. This is quite unfortunate.”
