President Muhammadu Buhari for the fourth time has refused to grant assent to the revised Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill 2018.

He has, therefore, written formally to the leadership of the National Assembly declining assent to the Bill which the Assembly transmitted to him on November 7.

THISDAY gathered that his letter was dated December 6.

Though the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, who made this known to State House correspondents Friday afternoon declined to state specifically the decision of the president on the document, he said the amendment bill had been transmitted back to the lawmakers.

According to Enang, the president has communicated his decision on the bill to the National Assembly.
