A Nigerian economics professor and a former Governor and chairman of the board of directors of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Charles Chukwuma Soludo, on Monday called for a single term of six years for the country’s presidents.
He made this call at the Alex Ekwueme Square, Awka, Anambra State, while speaking at the south-east summit on restructuring Nigeria.
He also suggested that the country should have five vice presidents, each representing a geopolitical zone.
Pointing out that presidents should serve for a single term and the years of the term should be extended from four years to six years, Soludo said: “The tenure of office of the President shall be a single term of six years.
“There shall be five Vice Presidents. One from each of the six geopolitical zones.”
According to Sahara Reporters, Soludo’s comments come as a reawakening of calls by notable Nigerians for the restructuring of the country.
