Obi proposes five-year single tenure for presidential office
Written by News Desk on November 7, 2023
Peter Obi, in the February 2023 elections, has put forward a proposal for a five-year single presidential tenure for each of the six geopolitical zones in Nigeria.
Obi gave this recommendation during a press conference in Abuja, held two weeks after the Supreme Court affirmed President Bola Tinubu’s electoral victory on February 25, 2023, under the All Progressives Congress, APC.
His proposal comes in response to a recent press briefing by Atiku, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the same election, who suggested a constitutional amendment to establish a six-year single term for the President.
In contrast, Obi disagreed with the six-year tenure proposal, advocating for a five-year term with a 30-year rotation system.
