BREAKING: Senate dumps direct mode of primary elections

The Nigerian Senate on Wednesday dumped the direct mode of primary elections.

The Senate’s stand followed an amendment by the conference committee which recommended that “the direct primary mode of election be expunged.”

The direct primary has been replaced with three options, including direct, indirect and consensus in clause 85 of the Electoral Act Amendment Bill, 2021.

In another news, former military head of state, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida has disclosed that former military ruler, Sani Abacha deceived prominent Nigerians to get to power.

Recall that a national protest took place following the annulment of the election which forced Babangida to step aside and hand over power to Ernest Shonekan on August 27, 1993, as the head of an interim national government.

Weeks later, Abacha stagged a coup, returning Nigeria to military rule.
