Extend Presidential Term to Five Years - John Dramani Mahama

Former President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has endorsed suggestions for the extension of the term in office of President from the current four to five years.

The idea of the extension was first made by former President John Kufuor after exiting office in 2009.

Delivering a Lecture on Democracy and Elections in Contemporary Africa at the Said Business School in London over the weekend, Mr Mahama said it takes almost two years for the leader to get things running smoothly after elections thereby cutting to only two years the implementation period for projects outlined for transformation.

“I agree with President Kufuor I think a five-year term is better, first year, when you are elected, you are forming your government and before you’ve settled in you are in your second year, third year, fourth year you’re fighting an election. So essentially you have just two years to work and it makes it difficult.”
