Electoral Act: Buhari delaying to have a near perfect law – Presidency

President Muhammadu Buhari is delaying signing the Electoral Act Amendment before him because he wants to have a near perfect law in place.

Senior Special Adviser to the President, Media and Publicity Femi Adesina made this assertion while appearing on a national television breakfast show Tuesday, 22 February.

Adesina said no one can stampede the President to sign the act, making reference to civil society organizations plan to embark on nationwide protest tagged a day of action.

The media said the President will sign the act in hours before the expiration of the 30 days stipulated by law for the bill to stay with the President.

Pressured on to show that the President had the habit of holding on to bills he may not sign for long, Adesina said those exercing those fears should fear their fear and not fear the president act.

On adulterated fuel, long queues and jerked up pump price, Adesina said those responsible will be punished, but that is not the immediate concern of the government, but normalising the situation.

He asserted that the normal fuel supply and price regulation was “staffle” by operators.
