Senator Shehu Sani

The fomer Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has stated that signing the amended electoral Act into law will make the2023 general elections better than the one conducted in 2019.

Speaking during an interview with Channels Television, Sani urged the National Assembly to override Mr. President if he failed to sign the amended Act.

He said, “When they passed that bill, the comment that came from them was that they have taken power back to Nigerians and then the president rejected this bill and then they just don’t know what to do.

“They have no concrete plan on what to do. Nigerians need a credible electoral process and already they have a bill which Nigerians were happy with. So, if Nigerians accepted the bill, why should the president oppose it?

“If the president opposes it, the next thing Gbajabiamila and Lawan should do — let them have the courage to override him and approve that bill.

“For me, I believe they should know — both the National Assembly and the President. If there is any legacy that they will leave behind for this country, it is to let us have a new electoral act that will make the 2023 election better than 2019. If they fail in this, they fail in everything.”
