BREAKING: Buhari Postpones Signing Of Amended Electoral Bill Till Friday

President Muhammadu Buhari will sign the re-worked Electoral Act Amendment Bill on Friday, February 25.
 
A source close to the Presidency, who had earlier indicated that the President would assent to the bill on Wednesday, confirmed the new date to Channels Television.

According to the source, the new date will be honoured by the President.
 
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, had disclosed on Tuesday during an interview on Channels Television that Buhari would sign the bill between Tuesday and Wednesday.

“He (Buhari) will sign it (the bill) any moment from now,” he had said while appearing as a guest on a programme.
“It could be today, it could be tomorrow, it could be anytime, but within the 30 days.

“It could be signed today; it could be signed tomorrow. In a matter of hours; not days. Hours could be 24 hours; it could be 48 hours; not days, not weeks.” See Also Breaking News BREAKING: Buhari To Sign Amended Electoral Bill In Matter Of Hours – Presidency

There has been condemnation from several quarters over the Buhari presidency’s reluctance to sign the bill.

SaharaReporters on Monday reported that the African Action Congress (AAC) would join protests to press home the demand for the signing.

This was contained in a statement issued on Monday by Femi Adeyeye, the National Publicity Secretary of the Party.

According to the statement, the protests are necessary considering the abuse the electoral space had suffered under President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
