According to the group of lawmakers, this will ensure that there is a rotation of the presidency among the six geopolitical zones of the country.

Some lawmakers in the House of Representatives are seeking alterations to the Nigerian constitution to allow a President to serve a six-year tenure.

If the alteration to the 1999 Constitution is done, the change will also apply to governors, who like the President, currently are eligible for an eight-year tenure of four years in each term, The PUCNH reports.

According to the group of lawmakers, this will ensure that there is a rotation of the presidency among the six geopolitical zones of the country.

Speaking on behalf of the group on Monday in Abuja, the member representing Ideato South/Ideato North Federal Constituency, Imo State, Ikenga Ugochinyere, said, “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.”
