Ali Ndume, the lawmaker representing Borno South District in the National Assembly said any move to counter President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to reject the proposed amendments to the Electoral Act would be trashed.

The legislator hinted that such an attempt would amount to overriding the yearnings of the masses in the country.

According to Ndume , “If they make any move to override the president, we will block them. We are over 43 and more persons have indicated interest today. We are calling on our colleagues not to push the issue further because it is not in public interest.”

He maintained that the amendment would double the cost of the conduct of the elections and expose Nigerians to associated risks.

If the elections are conducted twice, the security implications would be less than when it is spread to three weeks as proposed by the bill,” he opined.
