Buhari Assents Electoral Bill After Great Pressure
It was a historic moment today in Abuja as President Buhari assented to the electoral act amended bill during a brief ceremony held at the Council Chamber of the Aso Villa in Abuja.
The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo; President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, witnessed the signing of the bill.
