PDP reveals what will happen in Nigeria if Buhari refuses to sign electoral bill
Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had said that the delay in signing the electoral act amendment bill into law by Buhari was causing tension in the country.
This disclosure was made by Debo Ologunagba, the PDP publicity secretary, on Tuesday, February 22, at a media parley in Abuja.
The opposition party’s spokesman said the growing tension has the potential to cause violence, which might affect West Africa and other regions.
Ologunagba said Buhari’s refusal to sign the electoral act amendment bill constitutes an obstruction to the democratic principle of credible elections.
He added that an electoral process that does not ensure free, fair and transparent transmission of election results from the polling units leads to unconstitutional change of government against the will of the people.
The opposition party called on Nigerians and civil society organisations to prevail on Buhari to sign the bill into law to avert an impending crisis in our country.
