Atiku Appeals To President Buhari To Sign The Electoral Amendment Bill Into Law 1

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has appealed to President Buhari to sign the Electoral Amendment Bill into law.

Last week, December 6, 2018, President Buhari in a letter to the National Assembly declined to sign the bill, saying it is for fear of disrupting plans already in place for the 2019 elections. Read the report HERE.

Atiku had previously said that President Buhari’s refusal to sign the electoral bill into law shows his assurances for a free and fair election cannot be taken seriously.

Yesterday, Wednesday, December 12, 2018, when the PDP presidential candidate was signing the Peace Accord document, he pleaded with Buhari to sign the Electoral Amendment Bill into law. He said:

“I am delighted that Mr President has agreed to sign this peace accord. I will want to appeal to him to also sign the Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill. Mr. President needs to understand that as long as he refuses to sign the bill, we will have doubts that this government is truly committed to free, fair and credible elections.

 “I am a democrat ab initio. I was never converted. I have always been a democrat. And I fought the military to return this country to democracy. However, the best way to guarantee peace in any election is to ensure manifest justice to all concerned.”
