Governor Wike Hints Saraki On How To Hasten Up Buhari To Sign The Electoral Bill.

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has told Senate President, Bukola Saraki to make President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the Electoral Act.

Adding that Saraki and the National Assembly  should not pass the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, budget if the President refuses to assent the electoral act.

The Governor demanded immediate assent from President Buhari to the bill. Governor Wike said that the Electoral Act should be in place for the processes of the 2019 elections to be legally kick-started.

While speaking at the Government House, Port Harcourt, the River State capital during a visit by the Saraki Campaign Organisation, he said  “As leader of the National Assembly, do all you can for the Electoral Act to be passed,”

Saraki is one of the 13 presidential aspirants on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

He continued, “Once the Electoral Act is passed if it is not assented to, I urge you, people, not to pass the INEC Budget, because INEC budget is based on the Electoral Act. I urge that these things must be taken together”.
