Jonathan confirms single term plan

27 July 2011

In an apparent move to debunk speculations that President Goodluck Jonathan is plotting to alter the tenure of political office holders, the President on Tuesday confirmed that he would be sending a bill to the National Assembly to seek for a single term for the offices of the President and Governors. The President, who spoke through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, however, denied speculations that the plan was self-serving.

Abati’s statement, titled, “President Jonathan and tenure of office,” however, did not provide details of the proposed bill, particularly, the duration of the proposed single term.
