The Electoral Act Amendment Bill is expected to be signed by Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday.
The President has been briefed on the amendments, according to the Presidential Spokesman and “should sign by Friday if nothing else comes up.”
Presidential Spokesman Femi Adesina said; “He (Buhari) will sign it (the bill) any moment from now.
“It could be today, it could be tomorrow, it could be anytime, but within 30 days.
“It could be signed today; it could be signed tomorrow. In a matter of hours, not days. Hours could be 24 hours, it could be 48 hours; not days, not weeks.”
Anxiety had grown as a result of President Buhari refusal to sign the re-amended electoral bill. Some members of the public and key stakeholders had already determined that he would refuse to provide his consent once more.
