FODEP Commends NCC

Foundation for Democratic Process (FODEP) has commended the NCC for unanimously adopting the clause that allows only candidates with a degree from a recognized institution to contest the presidency.

FODEP Information Officer, MacDonald Chipenzi said the clause should not be seen as way of deterring others from standing as the winning candidate will rule the nation with intellectuality.

Chipenzi said the winning president would be learned and bring out issues when invited for regional and international conferences.

He further said this was a good move as it would encourage individuals who wish to stand as presidents in future to work hard as the performance of the office of the president would now depend on academic qualification.
