Six-Year Tenure - PDP to Drive Process, Faces Two Opposing Camps in Govt

31 July 2011

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is the proposed vehicle to be used by the proponents of the controversial move on the six-year single term for the president and state governors, to push the process of amending the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Sunday Vanguard can reveal.

There were also indications at the weekend that the issue has split the Presidency into two camps. There are those rooting for President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to take the risk of arranging the six-year tenure move such that he could be a beneficiary. Others are cautioning against it.

The president has said he is consulting but the disagreement among his loyalists in government was said to have forced him into a dilemma on the issue.
