Speaking at the 30th anniversary of Yusuf Ali & Co in Ilorin, Kwara State, he stressed that democracy can only thrive through adherence to the rule of law and quality governance, not by adopting a parliamentary system.

He warned that lack of access to truth and justice can lead to the downfall of nations, citing examples of countries that collapsed due to frustrated access to justice.

Shettima also addressed the recent electoral process, stating that President Bola Tinubu did not influence the outcome and that the presidency did not use its power to persecute opponents.

Former Minister of Works, Raji Fashola, echoed Shettima’s sentiments, noting that Nigeria had previously tried a parliamentary system without success, leading to “unwarranted disaster.”
