The Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan has said that President Muhammadu Buhari cannot be forced into signing the 2018 Electoral Act Amendment bill into law.
The Senator said President Buhari has signed more bills than any previous President in the country.
President Buhari had withheld his assent to the bill about three times due to ‘errors’ in the amended bill before the latest version was submitted to the Presidency.
Speaking with State House correspondents after jumaat prayer at the Presidential Villa on Friday, Lawan said the President must take his time to study the document to avoid errors before signing it.
He noted that the amended 2006 Electoral Act can still be used for the 2019 general elections.
Lawan said if properly implemented, the 2006 Electoral Act can even deliver a more transparent, free and fair elections in 2019.
The lawmaker said, “The President is willing to sign the bill provided it meets certain conditions that will make our electoral processes better. I believe the President is studying this bill.”
