Femi Adesina, Senior special adviser to the president on media and publicity, says President Muhammadu Buhari will sign the revised electoral act amendment bill in a matter of hours, Pulsenews reports.
He disclosed this on Tuesday during an interview on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme.
“It could be today, it could be tomorrow; it could be anytime, but within the 30 days,” Adesina said.
“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.”
He further explained that the President need more consultations, before he can sign it
“You know before the president will put pen to paper on any legislation, particularly this one that has to do with our electoral fortunes, it has to be looked at and looked at,” he said.
“He has to buy opinions from different stakeholders and having been satisfied that the necessary due diligence had been done and he will not be making any error, then he will sign it, and I tell you that Nigerians will get to hear about this bill in hours.”
