The Senate on Wednesday rejected  President Muhammdu Buhari’s Bill seeking to amend the Electoral Act, 2022.

The Bill titled: “A Bill for an Act to amend the Electoral Act 2022 and for related matters, 2022,” was overwhelming rejected by Senators, a development that effortlessly stopped at its second reading.

The Bill went through the  first reading on Tuesday despite a court order barring the Senate from acting on it.

Senate President Ahmad Lawan challenged the Court order saying that the Judiciary cannot in any circumstances stop the Legislature from performing its constitutional duties.
