The President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, has clarified that none of the presiding officers in the two chambers of the National Assembly will determine the outcome of the electoral acts amendment.
The President made this known at the inauguration and swearing-in ceremony of the Chief Commissioner and Commissioners of the Public Complaints Commission in Abuja, on Monday.
He advised Nigerians to engage their representatives in both chambers of the National Assembly on whatever issues they feel strongly about in the bill.
Lawan said, “The National Assembly is embarking on the amendment of the Electoral Act, probably by next week or within the next two weeks.
“It is very important that those who feel very strongly about any amendment that they think should be effected in the Electoral Act should contact or talk to their members of the House of Representatives as well as Distinguished Senators.
“I want to state categorically here that presiding officers are not the ones to determine what is carried or what is not.
“So, it is very important that in the same way, the Public Complaints Commission is utilized properly by the general public.”
