Amidst heated tensions and accusations of electoral fraud, military leader Mahamat Idriss Deby has emerged victorious in Chad’s closely watched presidential election.

Provisional results from the National Election Management Agency reveal Deby secured over 61 percent of the vote, solidifying his position as the incumbent president.

Deby’s victory comes after a contentious race against Prime Minister Succes Masra, who garnered 18.5 percent of the vote. However, Masra has refused to accept the results, alleging manipulation by Deby’s government.

The election marks a significant moment in Chad’s political landscape, being the first time an incumbent faced off against their prime minister in a presidential race.

Deby, who took power following his father’s death, former President Idriss Deby, has faced criticism for his family’s long-standing rule and allegations of stifling opposition.

The lead-up to the election was marred by violence, including the killing of opposition figures and accusations of irregularities in candidate applications.

Masra has called on his supporters and security forces to reject the election results and support his claim to the presidency.

Anambra State Governor Chukwuma Soludo has thrown his weight behind a single term for elected officeholders, but rejects the idea of autonomy for local governments, calling it “against the principles of true federalism”.

Speaking at The Platform Democracy Day programme in Lagos, Soludo argued that a single term would allow leaders to focus on development rather than electioneering. He also proposed a single-parliament National Assembly to reduce costs.

But on local government autonomy, Soludo disagrees, saying it would take Nigeria back decades. Instead, he advocates for states to design their own local government systems and receive more fiscal powers from the Federal Government.

Soludo also called on President Bola Tinubu to address the country’s economic challenges, warning that printing more money would lead to inflation.

What do you think? Should Nigeria adopt a single term for politicians and reject LG autonomy? Share your thoughts!
