Abuja, Nigeria – A group of lawmakers in the House of Representatives is pushing for significant amendments to the 1999 Constitution. The proposed changes aim to establish a rotational presidency among the six geo-political zones of Nigeria and introduce a single six-year tenure for the President and Governors.

Speaking on behalf of the group on Monday, Ikenga Ugochinyere, the member representing Ideato South/Ideato North Federal Constituency in Imo State, highlighted the potential benefits of these amendments. He stated, “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.”

The proposed amendments are seen as a strategy to promote national unity and enhance the efficiency of governance in Nigeria.
