A group, The Progressive Yoruba Youth Congress (PYYC), has hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for refusing to give assent to a legislation from the national assembly.

At a press conference on Monday, Kola Salau, national president of the group, hailed Buhari for rejecting the latest amendments of the Electoral Act (Amendment Bill, 2018).

“The issue in contention, which has attracted so much of empty hullabaloo is the alleged refusal of President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, to assent to the latest amendments/revision of the Electoral Act (Amendment Bill, 2018) transmitted to the President at different times within six months,” he said.

“We dare say, the leadership of the National Assembly has deliberately midwifed this controversy over a matter as simple as Mr. President’s signing of an amended law. It is extremely unreasonable on the part of NASS. That the NASS has allowed this matter to drag this long and close to the next general elections is to find a window to cast aspersions against President Buhari or portray him as anti-democratic and a leader who is opposed to free, fair and credible elections in 2019.

“We have realized the sole aim of these political merchants is to create a condition conducive enough to instigate Nigerians against the Buhari Presidency.

“We are not astounded with the latest development which has thrown such an important Bill into needless controversy and unnecessary delays by the Sen. Saraki-led Senate. No Nigerian is in doubt about the obsession of the 8th session of the National Assembly with politics and its abdication of the basic responsibility of legislation, the main reason Nigerians gave them the mandate to the National Parliament.”
