Peter Obi canvasses 5-year single term for President


The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, has canvassed a single five-year term for Nigeria’s President.

Obi said that the proposal formed part of his campaign during the electioneering period, adding that he would have moved for the amendment of the Constitution to allow the President stay only five years in office.

He spoke during a press conference in Abuja on Monday, where he addressed issues arising from the recent ruling of the Supreme Court that upheld the victory of President Bola Tinubu in the last election.

“On the issue of a single term, we campaigned on the issue of restructuring and reform and that would have included an amendment to make this Constitution be a workable and functional Constitution that would be productive for Nigerians. I included in that would have been the issue of single tenure.

“I would go for a five-year tenure which would go for thirty years rotational.”
