Groups including civil society organisations under the umbrella of the Situation Room have stormed the Unity Fountain in Abuja for a protest.
The protesters on Tuesday morning gathered at the Unity Fountain and displayed various placards asking President Muhammadu Buhari to assent the Electoral Act Amendment Bill into law.
The protesters later went on procession towards the National Assembly.
Meanwhile, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina in an interview on National Television, said it is just a matter of hours for President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the Bill.
He stated that it would only be appropriate to say President Buhari has acted against the law if exceeds the 30-day window provided by the law.
