The Unified Nigerian Youth forum, has commended  President Muhammadu Buhari  for signing the electoral bill into law, saying though  it has come very lately, but is still far better than when he declined.

The President of the  Forum, Comrade Abdulsalam Moh’d Kazeem stated  this in a statement made available to the made available to the media.

 

The statement added that the act is commendable at any rate, as they believe and hope  that history will be fair to him on this singular act. The said bill will bring a-lot of significant visible changes in our entire electoral space.

“The new bill, which features the following Clauses; Electronics tranmission of results, compulsory usage of card readers, making provision for people living with disabilities and special needs, Resignation of political offices holders before the conduct of party primaries, conduct of party primaries at less 180 days before the general election, INEC can now review results previously declared under duress and so.

 

“To us as objective observer and stakeholders in the Nigerian project, all the clauses introduce in the bill is aimed at strenghting our democracy at all levels and to equally bring to a complete and logical end all forms of party manipulations that always try to undermine the institution saddle with the responsibilities of conducting election in Nigeria.

 

“The credibility of our poll’s will bring about positive impact on us (NIG.) among committee of nation, therefore the appeal by President Mohammad Buhari to the both leadership of 9th National Assembly to immediately amend the Act and expunge section 84 which stipulated that anyone holding any political office either as a minister, commissioner, Special Adviser and others, he/she must relinquish the position before they can be eligible to participate either as a delegate or candidate, should be outrightly ignored since the requst is not in the interest of nation democracy and the institution saddle with the conduct of our election, anything short of this will further proves to Nigerians that our Legislative arm of Government is a rubber stamp as previously alleged by many political affairs analyst.

“The president must at the point prove to us that National interest supersede  individual and personal demands of not using his above request to delay the release of the fund, which in return will slow down preparations of the 2023 general elections.”
