President Muhammadu Buhari has again declined accent to the amended electoral bill.

This would be the fourth time that the amendment to the 2010 Electoral Act in the current political dispensation has been rejected by the President.

Speaking to State House Correspondents, Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly matters, Senator Ita Enang said Buhari had accordingly returned the bill to the parliament.
Enang was not categorical on the action by President Buhari as he refused to accept suggestions that the bill had been rejected or that the President had declined accent.
He, however, maintained that the President had communicated his action to the National Assembly in line with his constitutional powers.
Enang also declined to give reasons adduced by Buhari for returning the bill to the National Assembly.
He said details on the issue would be disclosed by the National Assembly as contained in the communication by the President.
