Buhari extends signing of Amended Electoral Bill till Friday

President Muhammadu Buhari will sign the re-worked Electoral Act Amendment Bill on Friday, February 25.

According to the source, the new date will be honoured by the President.

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

It was 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.
