“It could be today, it could be tomorrow, it could be anytime, but within the 30 days. It could be signed today; it could be signed tomorrow. In a matter of hours, not days. Hours could be 24 hours, it could be 48 hours; not days, not weeks,” he said.

It can be recalled that the National Assembly transmitted the re-amended Electoral Act Amendment Bill to President Buhari for assent on January 31.

On January 25, lawmakers in the Senate and House of Representatives chambers of the National Assembly passed the harmonised version of the bill. The President declined to sign the bill in November last year due to what he described as huge costs of running direct primary elections, security challenges, and possible manipulation of electoral processes.

He asked that changes be made to the bill before he assents.
