Bill seeks longer terms for President, govs, MPs – Daily Trust

Rumours that President Goodluck Jonathan will seek to elongate the tenure in office of top political office holders came to pass yesterday when his office made public his intention to push for a constitutional amendment that will propose a single, elongated tenure in office for the president and state governors.

A constitutional amendment bill that Jonathan will shortly send to the National Assembly will also seek to elongate the tenure of members of the National and State Assemblies to "a little more than four years." It was not however specified what the proposed new tenure for the executive and legislative officers will be.
