BREAKING: National Assembly transmits 2021 Electoral Bill To President Buhari For Assent

Published

on

The 2021 Electoral Bill has been transmitted to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Recall that the bill which was recently passed by both chambers of the National Assembly has been a point of controversy over a provision for direct primaries by political parties which reports say do not favour the state Governors.

The Governors rather favour the delegate system to produce the party flag bearers.

A statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Senator Babajide Omoworare says the bill was transmitted to the president today Friday.

According to Senator Babajide, the transmission of the bill was done in compliance to Section 53, subsection 3 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) and the Acts Authentication Act 2004.

The statement reads: “Please be informed that in pursuance of Section 58 (3) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) and the Acts Authentication Act Cap. A2 LFN 2004, the National Assembly has transmitted the Electoral Bill 2021 to Mr. President today Friday November 19, 2021.”
