Check The Bill First – Nigerians React As President Buhari Signs Electoral Bill

 

Presidency Announces Fresh Appointment By Buhari

The decision of President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the Electoral Act Amendment Bill into law on Friday has stirred reactions online.

Naija News had earlier reported that a source in the Presidency affirmed that Buhari would sign the revised document around 12pm on Friday.

The President with much anticipation in the air signed the bill at a ceremony which took place inside the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja at about 12:30 pm.

The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu, Senate President, Ahmed Lawan and several others were present at the signing of the bill.

Some Nigerians in their reaction noted that the President should have honourably signed the bill before the protest by civil society organizations compelling him to assent to the bill.

Others are wondering if some important part of the bill had not been removed before the Buhari decided to sign the bill.
