Shehu Sani, a former federal lawmaker, has countered President Muhammadu Buhari on his suggestion that the section 84(12) of the Electoral Act bill be deleted..
Buhari had after signing the amended Electoral Act bill on Friday, suggested to the national assembly that the part which states “No political appointee at any level shall be voting delegate or be voted for at the Convention or Congress of any political party for the purpose of the nomination of candidates for any election”, should be deleted because it would disenfranchise some eligible Nigerians
Buhari believes that section 84(12), if signed into law, subject serving political office holders to inhibitions and restrictions referred to under section 40 and 42 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).
He further argued that the “only constitutional expectation placed on serving political office holders that qualify, by extension, as public officers within the context of the constitution is resignation, withdrawal or retirement at least 30 days before the date of the election.
But Sani, who was a member of the eight national assembly, feels otherwise. He noted that resigning their appointments would help such appointees focus on their ambitions .
“Political appointees who want to contest elections will leave thier office and spend most of their time visiting constituencies,” Sani, who represented Kaduna central senatorial district tweeted.
“They should resign in good time and pursue their political ambitions. It’s wrong for the president to object to their six months resignation.”
