At last, President Muhammadu Buhari has finally assented to the long-awaited Electoral Act Amendment Bill 2022 on Friday.

He had last year withheld assent to an earlier version of the bill for reasons he expressed in his communication to the National Assembly.

He however signed the bill into an act after it was presented to him by his Senior Special Adviser on National Assembly Matters (Senate) Senator Babajide Omoworare.

The President also pointed out few issues in the new Act, to which he had proposed an amendments and appealed to the National Assembly to give the required attention to it.

The ceremony was witnessed by the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF), Dr Kayode Fayemi, and some others.
