The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the National Assembly to override President Muhammadu Buhari on the Electoral Act Amendment Bill.

The PDP in a statement on Thursday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan claimed that the President is holding the nation to ransom by "refusing to sign" the bill.

"The PDP therefore calls on the ‎National Assembly to override President Buhari since his refusal to sign the amendment bill is out of personal and partisan interests instead of the overall interest of the natio‎n.

‎"President Buhari and the APC are quavering because the draft law effectively checked all their machinations, which they have been deploying in rigging past elections and intend to use in the 2019 general elections.

"The amendment bill, which is in the overall interest of the nation, embattles President Buhari because it eliminates openings for major malpractices including the use of underage and alien voters, vote-buying, alteration of results and manipulation of voter register, which the APC intends to use to rig the 2019 elections," the PDP claimed.
