Senators in Nigeria have voted against President Buhari’s request to amend the 2022 Electoral Act, to allow political appointees seek elective positions without resigning their appointments.

The Executive Communication which was a subject of controversy among Senators due to a court order was eventually put to vote on Wednesday but a majority of them voted overwhelmingly against it.

That controversial aspect of the Electoral Act 2022, is clause eighty four (84) subsection twelve (12).
