Following the news report by ThisDay Newspaper on the rejection of the new Electoral bill President Muhammadu Buhari (which could cancel the use of Card Readers), the Presidency has issued a statement describing this as, “incorrect, misleading, wild and baseless”.
The New Electoral Bill which is being worked on to improve the Electoral Process of Nigeria is still pending after passage by the National Assembly.
However with this development of rejection (by the President) trending, a statement was issued by the State House explaining the true situation of things.
Full Statement below;
“If I support Atiku for anything, God will not forgive me. If I do not know, yes. But once I know, Atiku can never enjoy my support. It is not a question of working with or not working with an individual. If you are working for the good of Nigeria, I am working with you. If you are not working for the good of Nigeria it does not matter who you are I am not working with you.”
“Most of you do not understand the way I operate and I thought your own paper will understand better. I know Atiku very well. And I have mentioned my position with Atiku. My position has not changed.”
“If my children are getting married, he sends representatives. If his children are getting married, I also send representatives. That is social. That is not political. But on political ground, my position has not changed.”
