Buhari Rejects Electoral Act Amendment






President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has rejected the amendment to the Electoral Act, which intended to change the Country’s elections sequence.

It was gathered that the President gave three reasons for withholding assent to the bill, which was passed by both Chambers of the National Assembly.

According to Newsmen, the President has communicated his decision to the Federal Legislature in two separate letters addressed to the Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker Yakubu Dogara on Monday, March 12, 2018.

The two presiding Officers are expected to read the letters to their colleagues at plenary between on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 and Thursday, March 15, 2018.

Following the passage of the bill by the National Assembly, several Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Senior Lawyers and other notable Nigerians kicked against it, calling on the President not to assent to it.
