President Buhari said an amendment to the law close to the election period may provide an opportunity for disruption and confusion in respect of which law governs the electoral process.

Apparently displeased by the President’s action, the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) stressed that by refusing to sign the electoral amendment bill into law, President Buhari is willing to plunge Nigeria into crisis.

Reacting to President Buhari’s comment in a statement on  Friday, Ikenga Ugochinyere, CUPP spokesman, said the president “expectedly failed” to take advantage to write his name in gold by signing the bill.

Declining to assent to the bill, CUPP said, was an act of “clear desperation” on the president’s path.

In the same vein, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to air their opinions on the matter.
