The immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, on Friday, reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s refusal to sign the Electoral Bill.
Buhari had for the third time withheld his assent to the bill.
This was disclosed by the President’s Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang.
Addressing State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, Enang refused to state Buhari’s reasons.
Enang disclosed that the bill was returned to the National Assembly.
Reacting to Buhari’s decision to withheld his assent, Fayose wondered if the interest of an individual could be placed above that of Nigerians.
In a tweet, Fayose wrote: “What is President Buhari’s fear concerning this Electoral Bill? Can the interest of a single individual be placed above that of Nigeria and its people?
“Is he saying that even his party members in the NASS were wrong to have passed the Electoral Bill? May God save our country.”
