Amendment Of Electoral Act Bill Provision Tops Agenda As Senate Move Into Closed-Door Session

By Babajide Okeowo

As the House of Representative reveals the intention to amend a provision of the Electoral Act Bill tomorrow, the Senate on Tuesday resumed plenary after its Christmas and New Year break and dissolved into a closed-door session.

The Upper Chamber immediately dissolved into an executive session as soon as the Senate President Ahmad Lawan took his seat at 10.46 a.m.

It is not clear what issues the Senators are deliberating upon but it is believed that the amendment of the Electoral Act 2010 is likely to be one of them.

President Muhammadu Buhari had vetoed the Electoral Act (amendment) Bill passed and transmitted to him for assent.

Buhari had cited the limitation of political parties to the use of direct primary in nominating candidates for election as a major reason for rejecting the Bill passed by the National Assembly.
