Description The President is both head of state and head of government. He's commander-in-chief of the Nigeria Armed Forces.

He appoints members of a cabinet, called Federal Ministers, in imitation of the nomenclature used traditionally by European Chancellors. Proposed Federal Ministers must be confirmed by the Senate within 21 days of their nomination. A President can dismiss a cabinet member at will.

The President serves a term of four years, for a maximum of two terms.
