A motion seeking to force the National Assembly to override President Muhammadu Buhari’s veto on the amendment made to Section 84(8) of the Electoral Act 2022 has suffered a setback.
It comes after Deputy Speaker, Ahmed Idris Wase of the House of Representatives on Tuesday rejected the motion.
Wase, directed the mover of the motion, Hon. Ben Igbakpa, from Delta State to “follow proper procedure.”
Recall that the honourable members, shortly after the primary elections, had criticised the amended Section 84(8) of the Electoral Act 2022 after most of them failed to clinch tickets to enable them to return to the House in the next political dispensation.
The development had made most of the legislators angry, prompting some of them to mull overriding the President.
