Former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has questioned President Muhammadu Buhari’s reluctance to sign the Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill 2018 into law.
Fayose on his verified Twitter handle, @GovAyoFayose reacted to the news of Buhari declining his assent to the bill for the fourth time.
He tweeted, “What is President Buhari’s fear concerning this Electoral Bill? Can the interest of a single individual be placed above that of Nigeria and its people? Is he saying that even his party members in the National Assembly were wrong to have passed the Electoral Bill? May God save our country.”
Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly Matters ( Senate), Senator Ita Enang, had on Friday revealed that the president refused to sign the electoral bill, without stating the reasons for his refusal.
He simply said, “The president has taken a decision in a accordance with the powers vested in him according to the constitution.
“And by convention, that decision contained in the communication can only be revealed by the person to whom that decision is addressed.”
