Electoral Bill: How APC is planning to extend Buhari’s Tenure – PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has alleged that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC is planning to extend President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure as President beyond 2023.

The party’s National publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, disclosed that the delayed signing of the Electoral Amendment Act Bill by the President was part of a plot to keep him in power beyond 2023.

He said that President Buhari and the APC were “heightening apprehension across the country and orchestrating a constitutional impasse that can railroad our democracy into an emergency tenure elongation.”

“Widespread restiveness with consequential violence, bloodletting and attendant humanitarian crisis in the country that may affect the entire West Africa subregion, Europe, America and other parts of the world if not addressed.”

“It is clear that President Buhari and the APC are erecting road blocks to the passage of the Electoral Act Amendment Bill due mainly to the provision for electronic transmission of election results from the polling units which will eliminate APC’s plans to manipulate the system, militarize the process, alter election results at collation centers and foist itself again into power against the Will of Nigerians.”

However, President Buhari is expected to sign the bill on Friday.
