President Muhammadu Buhari has been challenged to sign the Electoral Act Amendment Bill into law by the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum.
AYCF’s National President, Yerima Shettima, stated that Nigeria’s election system is in disarray, necessitating the passage of the bill.
Shettima told Daily Post that Buhari will be recognized for doing right and following Nigerians’ wishes by bringing the bill into law.
Shettima said: “The fact of the matter is that our electoral system is not doing good at all. We must make sacrifices to make it improve. If we have to improve on it, then we have to change the pattern.
“I don’t know the reason why the president is thinking twice about this issue of electoral Act and I don’t know his fears.
“But, one thing I’m sure of is that, if he can take the bold step and be courageous enough, he would be remembered for good. I do not think it would be good for him not to do the bidding of Nigerians.
“From all indications, Nigerians want the electoral Act to be signed into law. I don’t know if it’s because of direct primaries or there are other reasons. For me, I will advise him to do it, so that his name will be remembered for taking advantage of what this opportunity has provided.”
