The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), will abide by the amended Electoral Act if signed by the President, says Mr. Solomon Soyebi.
We will implement the amended Electoral Act if assented to by President Muhammadu Buhari, says The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Mr Solomon Soyebi, INEC National Commissioner, Voter Education and Publicity, said this on Thursday during his appearance on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.
It should be noted that the Senate had on Wednesday adopted the conference committee report on the Electoral Act 2010 (Amendment) Bill, which alters the sequence in which elections are conducted in the country.
Presidential and National Assembly elections have always held (on the same day) before other polls, while the governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections follow.
But the lawmakers have amended the sequence such that the National Assembly polls would be conducted first, followed by the state lawmakers, and the governors while the presidential election should take place last.
