An International Election Observer group, a Pan-African Women projects that monitored the 2019 general elections in the country, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to assent to the amended Electoral Act.
The Publicity Secretary of PAN Project 2019, Ms Mphoentle Keitseng, who monitored Governorship and House of Assembly elections in Akwa Ibom, made the appeal during an interactive session with newsmen in Uyo on Wednesday.
According to her, the Electoral Bill will help to facilitate and regulate a proper conduct of subsequent elections in the country.
She noted with dismay that the just concluded governorship and House of Assembly elections were marred with irregularities such as vote-buying, ballot box-snatching, intimidation, thuggery and disruption of voting process.
Keitseng harped on the need to review the Electoral Act in order to help strengthen the electoral process.
