Buhari Must Sign Electoral Bill So Fast – Jega


Following agitations that the president should sign the electoral bill, a former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Attahiru Jega has urged President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Assembly to pass the Electoral Act Amendment Bill 2021, immediately.

Disclosing this in a Townhall meeting on Sunday, he reportedly stated, “This country will be better off if we go into the next election with a new electoral law which will enhance the integrity of the preparations and conduct of the elections.”

 The  Professor reportedly explained that the bill contains a lot of new amendments, adding that 36 recommendations had been made for the bill by INEC to the National Assembly, 31 of which were approved with little or no amendments.

He added the amendments are the first in the last 12 years, and withholding assent to the bill, over a clause, would, therefore, be detrimental to INEC’s ability to adequately prepare for coming elections.”
