House of Representatives Legislators Push for Presidential Rotation


A Group of Legislators under the Aegis of Reform-Minded Legislators of the House of Representatives is advocating for amendments to the 1999 Constitution to mandate the rotation of the Presidency among Nigeria’s Six Geo-Political zones.

They also seek a constitutional change to implement a single six-year tenure for the President and Governors of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Representative for Ideato South/Ideato North Federal Constituency in Imo State, Hon. Ikenga Ugochinyere, while speaking on behalf of the group in Abuja, emphasized the benefits of the proposed changes.

He stated that a single six-year term for the President and Governors would significantly reduce government spending and wastage, improve governance efficiency, and promote national stability.

Hon. Ugochinyere highlighted that the measures would be crucial in cutting costs and fostering a more balanced and fair political landscape in Nigeria.
