The Presidency on Tuesday disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari would soon do the needful on the Electoral Act Amendment Bill.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Ita Enang, spoke in an interview with State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The constitution allows a 30-day deadline for action on a bill pending before the President.
Buhari had received the amendment bill on August 2 and if he fails to sign it into law or return it to the National Assembly between now and Sunday, the parliament may override him.
Reacting, Enang said Nigerians should expect news within the next few days.
“We will do the needful before the Bill expires,” the presidential aide simply said.
The Presidency had earlier in the month denied reports alleging that Buhari rejected the bill.
Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, said the Senate resolved to rescind its decision on a number of clauses included in the version they had earlier sent for consideration by the President.
