Del­e­gate wants two non-con­sec­u­tive terms for elected of­fi­cers

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Fran­cis Okeke

A del­e­gate at the Na­tional Con­fer­ence has said politi­cians may have two terms in elec­tive of­fice but the tenures must not run con­sec­u­tively.

Has­san Ril­wan who is a youth leader said no party or can­di­date should be al­lowed to stay per­pet­u­ally in of­fice in the name of con­ti­nu­ity so as to en­trench fair­ness and jus­tice in Nigeria’s po­lit­i­cal sys­tem.

He said “The youth of this coun­try want a govern­ment that will best ad­dress our di­ver­sity as a multi-eth­nic and mul­tire­li­gious so­ci­ety that we are,” he said.
