Reps propose rotational presidency, six-year per tenure

A bill seeking a single term of six years for the President and state governors was brought up on Monday by 35 members of the House of Representatives.

The bill also canvasses the rotation of the presidency among the six geopolitical zones of the country.

The 35 legislators, under the auspices of Reformed-minded Legislators, said the proposition would lead to a reduction in the cost of governance.

Addressing a press conference at the National Assembly Complex on Monday, the spokesman for the group, Ikenga Ugochinyere, added that the move would unite the country and ensure a seamless transition and unprecedented development for the country.
