- Former president John Mahama has called for an increase in a presidential term to 5 years
- According to him, the 4-year tenure is too short to implement policies planned by the winner of a presidential election
Former president John Dramani Mahama has called for an increase in the term of a president from four to five years.
According to him, it takes almost two years for the newly-elected president to settle in and get started with work.
He added that there are therefore only two years left for the implementation of projects planned by the government.
YEN.com.gh understands that former president John Agyekum Kufuor first came up with the idea, after exiting office in 2009.
Kasapafmonline.com reports that Mahama made the comments as part of a lecture on democracy and elections in contemporary Africa.
The lecture was given at the Said Business School in London, United Kingdom.
