Electoral Act Amendment: Bill to override Buhari stepped down in green chamber

149

A bill to override President Muhammadu Buhari over his delay in signing the amendment to the Electoral Act 2022, has been stepped down at the House of Representatives.

The bill was stepped down on Tuesday after the Deputy Speaker faulted it, stating that any move to override requires 2/3rd of members.

He advised the sponsor of the motion – Ben Igbakpa to step it down as it violates procedure for overriding the President.

It’s been over 30 days since the Minority Caucus in the House of Representatives had asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the one-item amendment to the Electoral Act 2022.

But the President has yet to sign it or communicate a decision to the National Assembly about the bill.
