Ekweremadu advocates single term of 6 years for President, Governors.

Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu

A single term of six years for incumbent President and Governors, has been proposed for the nation.

Deputy President of Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu,who made the proposal also raised alarm that the independence of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, was dangerously being compromised .

He said it had become imperative to go for a single term of office as it would reduce the desperation of incumbents, which in turn defiled the electoral process and endangered democracy.

At a retreat organised by the Presidential Committee in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, Senator Ekweremadu, charged the Constitution and Electoral Reform Committee to help restore the fast declining independence of the Independent National Electoral Commission, to help preserve the nation’s democracy.
