The Association of Local Government Vice Chairmen of Nigeria (ALGOVIC) has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for signing the long awaited amended electoral bill 2022 into law.
In a statement issued by the association’s National President, Lawrence Onuchukwu, said Buhari’s action was a right step taken to further deepen democracy in the country.
Onuchukwu who is the current Vice Chairman of Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) explained that before now, Nigerians were already losing hope in the nation’s electoral system, but as president assented to this amended electoral bill, this has reawakened Nigerian citizens to be rest assured that a new dawn of credible electoral process is in place.
He said the association as leaders of the people at the grassroots level are particularly happy that this new law will improve the election processes in the country with a lot of innovations that will guarantee free and fair poll.
The ALGOVIC Boss, however, commended the lawmakers for their untiring efforts to rework the bill severally before it got to this stage.
He, therefore, called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to commence the full implementation of the new electoral law with immediate effect.
