REPS: We Must Retain Four-Year Tenure

The House of Representatives’ Committee on Constitution Review has called for the retention of the four-year two terms for the President, Vice-President, State Governors and their Deputies.

Chairman, House Committee on Information, Malam Zakari Mohammed disclosed this to newsmen in Ilorin, Kwara State.

He said the House’s position on the issue is the true reflection of the vast majority of the people and advised Nigerians not to believe that the Senate committee’s recommendation of six-year single term came from all members of the National Assembly.

Malam Mohammed said the House of Representatives Committee on Constitution Review is presenting its own report soon.

According to him when they present their report, there will be conference committees between the Senate and the House of Representatives.

He said the House Committee went down to Nigerians in the three hundred and sixty Federal Constituencies, where most of the people want a retention of the two four-year terms as enshrined in the Constitution.
