Sign the electoral bill now, Saraki to Buhari

My position remains that the President, his aides, the entire country and the international community are aware that all the concerns raised by the President on the past three occasions he withheld assent to the #ElectoralBill have been addressed by the legislature. We bent backward on each occasion to accommodate the wishes of the President. We started work on this law since 2016 to prevent a situation where it would become part of the election controversies.

Every sincere commentator, observer, and analyst knows that what we have done with that bill is to raise the level of transparency, credibility, and acceptability of our electoral process. We made sure that the law, if assented to and honestly applied by INEC and all those concerned, will give us an election that will be better than what we had in 2015.

The President should know that the survival of democracy, its development and the future of Nigeria are far more important than the ambition of any individual or party.

I am using this opportunity to call on President Muhammadu Buhari to put a stop to this uncertainty in the political process by signing without delay the 2018 #ElectoralBill so as to allow INEC and the concerned parties know how to prepare for a credible process.
