Femi Adesina Says Buhari Will Sign Electoral Bill

The presidential aide, who disclosed this during an interview with Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Tuesday, February 22, said the bill was sent to the president nearly a month after the national assembly passed it.

Adesina said, “It could be today, it could be tomorrow; it could be anytime, but within the 30 days. It could be signed today; it could be signed tomorrow. In a matter of hours, not days. Hours could be 24 hours, it could be 48 hours; not days, not weeks.”

He criticised those accusing Buhari of delaying the signing of the bill, saying the president’s action is still within the requirements of the constitution.

Adesina said it will only be appropriate to say the president has acted against the law if he exceeds the 30-day window provided by the law.

He said, “You know before the president will put pen to paper on any legislation, particularly this one that has to do with our electoral fortunes, it has to be looked at and looked at.

“He has to buy opinions from different stakeholders and having been satisfied that the necessary due diligence had been done and he will not be making any error, then he will sign it, and I tell you that Nigerians will get to hear about this bill in hours.”

This comes nearly a month after lawmakers in the Senate and House of Representatives chambers of the National Assembly passed the harmonised version of the electoral bill.
