Following the refusal of President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the Electoral Bill, it has been reported that Senator Abdullahi Adamu from APC, representing Nasarawa West disclosed that he is happy that the President did not sign the Electoral Act Amendment Bill into law.
Adamu reportedly stated that, “It is strange and unfair to come up with a law regulating how parties conduct their elections. I support the President for not signing the bill and I minced no words on the floor of the Senate.”
He opined that, “We should appreciate that Buhari’s refusal to assent the bill means so much. He is a very articulate person; a very deep person in thought and planning.”
He added that, “The parties have their guidelines and conditions by which people accept to be members. You cannot be a member of a party and when you are there you want to change the rules of the game. It is not right; it is not fair.”
