CSOs commend Buhari for signing Electoral bill

In his speech, President Buhari described the bill as reformative and progressive.

The President said he would help make the Nigerian electoral process better and more transparent.

He said the National Assembly still has to rework section 84(12) of the act.

This is because it prevents political office holders from voting and being voted for during the party primaries.
