Reps Minority To Buhari: Sign Electoral Act Amendment

The Minority Caucus in the House of Representatives has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately sign the amendment to the Electoral Act 2022 transmitted to him by the National Assembly to avoid political crisis.

The amendment is to allow elected representatives, including the President, Vice President, Governors and Deputy Governors to vote during party primaries as statutory delegates.

It urges President Buhari to note that any further delay in signing the amendment to the Electoral Act to give political parties a sense of direction in the conduct of primaries for the election of candidates for the 2023 general elections has the capacity to derail our entire democratic process.

The Minority Reps said: “As representatives of the people, the Minority Caucus urges Mr. President to avert an imminent political crisis which has the capacity of exacerbating the security situation in the country by immediately signing the Amendment to the Electoral Act 2022 and leave a legacy of a credible electoral process to the nation.

“Our caucus calls on all Nigerians, the Civil Society, the International Community and all lovers of democracy to prevail on President Buhari to immediately sign the amendment to the Electoral Act 2022 and save our nation from an avoidable crisis.”
