The Senate president, Bukola Saraki, and Speaker of the House of Representative, Yakubu Dogara, say they are in agreement, in responding to President Muhammadu Buhari’s refusal to sign the Electoral Act Amendment Bill.
This position was contained in a statement signed by their spokespersons on Saturday.
This assertion comes following media reports that there was a disagreement between both parties over how the two chambers of the National Assembly will react to the withholding of assent on the Electoral Act Amendment Bill, by President Muhammadu Buhari .
The two leaders say the two legislative chambers were working in harmony to react to the president’s latest move.
President Buhari in separate letters to the Senate President and Speaker House of Representatives on March 13, rejected the proposed amendments to the Electoral Act.
The amendment alters the order of national elections, making National Assembly elections to come first ahead of presidential and governorship polls.
