House of Representatives Proposes Two Vice Presidents for North, South in Reform Bill

In a significant move towards constitutional reform, the House of Representatives has proposed the creation of two Vice Presidents for Nigeria, one representing the Northern region and the other the Southern region. This proposal is part of a series of six bills that have successfully passed their first reading in the House.

Sponsored by 35 members, these reforms aim to address key issues in governance. At a press conference in Abuja, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, the spokesperson for the group and representative of Ideato North/South federal constituency, highlighted the primary goals of the reforms: reducing government expenditure, improving governance efficiency, and enhancing national stability.

Ugochinyere explained that the introduction of two Vice Presidents is expected to foster a more inclusive and balanced representation in the federal government, reflecting Nigeria’s diverse regional interests. The proposed office of the Vice Presidents would ensure that both the North and South have significant roles in the executive branch, potentially easing regional tensions and promoting unity.

These constitutional reforms are part of a broader effort to modernize Nigeria’s governance structure, making it more responsive to the needs of its citizens. The bills will undergo further readings and debates in the House before they can be enacted into law.
