Abuja, June 10, 2024 – Some members of the House of Representatives are calling for a single tenure of six years for the president and state governors.

They are calling for an amendment of the constitution to reflect the new tenure to pave the way for rotation of the Presidency among the six geo-political zones of the country.

Ikenga U Ugochinyere, a member representing Ideato South/Ideato North Federal Constituency in Imo State, acting on behalf of the others, made the call at the plenary on Monday.

“The reduction in government spending and wastage, efficiency in governance, and national stability by providing a single term of six years for the president and governors will go a long way in cost-cutting measures,” he said. (GBN)
