The Senate has lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for signing the Electoral Act Amendment Bill Twenty-twenty-two into law.
Chairman Senate Committee on Media and Publicity, Ajibola Basiru made the commendation in a statement in Abuja, saying the Act is now the legislative framework for the conduct of elections in Nigeria.
Basiru congratulated the ninth Assembly for the innovative provisions in the Electoral Act that addressed obvious lapses that had inhibited credible elections.
He identified the conduct of primaries, campaign expenses, use of technological devices in elections and electronic transmission of results as some of the reforms introduced that would ensure the credibility of elections in the Country.
The lawmaker stated that the Senate had taken notice of Section 84(12) of the Act, especially the concerns raised the President and assured Nigerians that the National Assembly would give the section the desired legislative attention.
