EKWEREMADU PROPOSES SINGLE TENURE OF 6YEARS FOR PRESIDENTS


Deputy  President of Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has proposed a single term of six years for incumbent president and governors to reduce the desperation of incumbents, which endangers democracy.
Speaking Tuesday at the retreat organised by the presidential Committee in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, Senator Ike Ekweremadu ,in a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Uche Anichukwu said
“Much of the impunity, violence, and malpractices that defile our electoral system are caused by desperation for a second term of office; a single term of six years, for example, for incumbent executives to conclude all their ‘good work’, will certainly reduce the weight and influence they bring to bear on elections remotely or directly affecting them” he said.
