Enang disclosed that the bill was returned to the National Assembly.

Reacting, Sani condemned Buhari’s decision, warning the president not to be a par taker of those not in support of credible election.

The Kaduna lawmaker on His Twitter page wrote: “Opposition to the Electoral amendment Bill is a disservice to democracy.

“The President should not be in league with those allergic to credible elections.

“How can the ruling elites now fear and discard the chariot that delivered them to power, one they showered so much praises?”
