The Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), on Tuesday, received the report of the ex-Senate President, Ken Nnamani led 25-member Constitution and Electoral Reform Committee (CERC).
While submitting the report, Nnamani said the committee’s recommendations would form an executive bill that would be sent to the National Assembly, adding that the Senate and House of Representatives have bills on the same subject.
Nnamani disclosed that the three bills would be harmonised at the National Assembly.
The minister, while receiving the report on behalf of the federal government in his office, said the recommendations would be forwarded to President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said the committee has made recommendations on how to strengthen the INEC, the participation of independent candidates, the management of political parties and tackling of electoral offences among others.
These recommendations would guide the federal government’s constitution amendment proposals for the improvement of the nation’s electoral system.
