35 members of the House of Representatives known as reformers, have proposed a Bill for an Act demanding the constitutional alteration to provide for the rotation of executive powers among the six geopolitical zones.


The lawmakers led by Ikenga Ugochinyere, made the call while addressing a news conference at the National Assembly, stating that the move is to ensure equal representation and reduce the desperation and tempo of agitation for the creation of states.


Ugochinyere, said the lawmakers were also seeking the provision of a single tenure of six years for the President and Governors in the country, and an amendment to the Electoral Act 2022 to ensure that all governorship elections are held on the same day.


Although, the national assembly had in the past thrown out bills for a single term for political office holders, opposition figures like Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi called for single tenure for the office of the President after they lost the 2023 presidential poll.
