DEPUTY Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has reiterated the call for a single term for the president and governors.
Ekweremadu said Nigeria’s political atmosphere is getting toxic ahead of the 2019 general elections and governance is taking a backseat.
he said this atmosphere, with the accompanying brazen political excesses are unlikely to abate until well after the 2019 general elections.
he added that those who call the shots today throw everything within their reach into the mix in desperate efforts to retain power at all costs and by all means.
Ekweremadu said although a renewable four-year term is popular, societies are dynamic and it is up to citizens to make necessary constitutional adjustments to safeguard democracy and make periods leading up to our elections less toxic.
