The motion seeking to cause the National Assembly to override President Muhammadu Buhari’s veto on the amendment made to Section 84(8) of the Electoral Act 2022 has been rejected by the House of Representatives.

The Deputy Speaker of the house, Ahmed Idris 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.
