Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has declined to assent to the Electoral (Amendment) Bill 2018 for the fourth time.
The President’s Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly matters, Senator Ita Enang said President Buhari communicated to the National Assembly, the decision taken on the Electoral Act.
Concise News recalls that the President had three times rejected assent to the bill, a development which has continued to generate speculations.
The President rejected the bill for the first time as a result of the re-ordering of election sequence. He also declined to sign the bill on the account of drafting errors.
In September, President Buhari rejected the bill for the third time due to what Enang described as “some drafting issues” that have remained unaddressed.
