On Monday, June 10, Ikenga Ugochinyere, representing Ideato South/Ideato North Federal Constituency in Imo State, addressed a news conference at the National Assembly in Abuja on behalf of 35 members of the House of Representatives.

The group is advocating for amendments to the 1999 Constitution to introduce the rotation of the Presidency among Nigeria's six geo-political zones. Additionally, they propose a constitutional amendment to implement a single six-year tenure for the President and Governors.

He said, “The bill is also seeking 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.”

The group called for the creation of the office of two vice presidents from the southern and northern parts of Nigeria.

“The 1st vice shall be a succession Vice president, while the 2nd Vice president shall be a Minister in charge of the Economy, and both shall be Ministers,” he said.

He said that the bill would seek to amend the relevant sections of the Electoral Act to ensure that all elections at both Federal and State levels were held on the same day among others.

The lawmaker said that the bill, if it becomes an Act, would ensure that all elections and election-related litigation were concluded within a period of six months.

This, according to him, must happen before the swearing into office of the validly elected person for the office contested.

“Ours is a commitment to building a united, stable, and prosperous nation. Nigeria can and must become a great and modern nation,” Ugochinyere said.
