The Immediate past President of the Nigerian Senate, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to consider signing the amended electoral bill into law.
He made the call during an interview with newsmen at the National Headquarters of the PDP in Abuja, on Tuesday.
The Bill according to the 2023 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, is a critical foundation needed for good governance.
Saraki stressed that a good and strong electoral act must be established for the country to progress democratically and to maintain good governance.
The former Kwara State Governor said, “My appeal is that the strength of any good governance is its electoral process. If we say we are for good democracy, good governance, you must have a strong, very good Electoral Act.
“We are leaders, not only the continent, Nigeria is a strong member of the global nations, and as such when we speak, we should also do the right thing at home. We need a good and strong electoral Act.”
Saraki further, admitted that though no law can ever be perfect, President Buhari should, however, sign the electoral bill as it will be the greatest legacy to lay the foundation for good governance.
