The presidency says President Muhammadu Buhari is determined to assent to the Electoral Act Amendment Bill 2021.
The Senior Special Assistant National Assembly Matters (Senate), Babajide Omoworare, stated this on Thursday at a dialogue on the Electoral Act Amendment Bill, organized by the National Institute for Legislative and Democratic Studies in Abuja.
Speaking on the policy dialogue centred on ‘Electoral Bill 2021 and Quest for Presidential Assent: Matters Arising,’ Babajide said President Buhari is still consulting with critical stakeholders on whether to sign the electoral act amendment bill or not.
While saying that the President is aware of the constitutional time constraint for assent to the bill, he explained that Section 58 of the Constitution has given him a 30-day time frame to sign the document.
