Hours after the Special Adviser To the President on Media and Publicity revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari will sign the Electoral Act Amendment Bill into law soon, sources in the Presidency have put the likely time as tomorrow.
The sources disclosed to Channels Television on Tuesday that President Buhari will likely sign the re-worked electoral act amendment bill into law on Wednesday, February 23.
According to the sources, all is now set for the President to append his signature to the bill on Wednesday.
This comes a few hours after Mr Femi Adesina during an interview on Sunrise Daily said President Buhari will sign the bill any moment from now.
“It could be today, it could be tomorrow, it could be anytime, but within the 30 days. 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,” Adesina said early on Tuesday morning.
This hint also comes amid protests by civil society groups in Abuja demanding that President Buhari assent the bill.
The groups gathered and displayed various placards at the Unity Fountain asking the President to sign the bill
