BREAKING: Motion seeking to override Buhari on Section 84(8) rejected at plenary

The House of Representatives has rejected a motion that would have forced the National Assembly to override President Muhammadu Buhari’s veto on an amendment to Section 84(8) of the Electoral Act of 2022.

The House directed the motion’s mover, Delta State’s Hon. Ben Igbakpa, to “follow proper procedure” during a plenary session presided over by Deputy Speaker Ahmed Idris Wase.

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.

The development had made most of the legislators angry, prompting some of them to mull overriding the President.
