Buhari Demands Amendment To Signed Electoral Act

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, March 1, urged the National Assembly to amend the newly-signed Electoral Act 2022. In a letter from the presidency read on Tuesday by Senate, Ahmad Lawan, President Buhari told the nation’s legislative body to consider the complete deletion of Section 84 (12).

This portion of the electoral act demands that political appointees must resign their offices before contesting primaries in parties. According to the president, this provision of the act infringes on the right of the appointees.
