Gbajabiamila denies alteration of Electoral Act amendment bill by NASS leadership

NEWSMAN, Abuja – Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has condemned the claims that the leadership of the National Assembly altered the report on the Electoral Act (amendment) Bill 2020, still awaiting consideration by the Legislature.

The speaker dismissed the thought, saying that it existed only in the “realm of speculation”.

Gbajabiamila in a statement, while addressing a point of privilege raised on the floor on Tuesday, clarified that nothing had happened to the authentic report on the bill, adding that the House would pass it in the next few days.

”Some media reports had lately conveyed the impression that the leadership of the National Assembly had altered the report, especially the provision on electronic voting, where it allegedly reversed the committee recommendation that election results should be transmitted electronically”, he disclosed.

Gbajabiamila, who noted that the allegation was mere speculation, urged Nigerians to discountenance it.

He also expressed surprise that anyone would accuse the leadership of altering the report of a bill still in the custody of the Committee on Electoral Matters.

“I really don’t want to speak on a report that has yet to be presented to the floor….Ordinarily, I will not comment on a matter that is not before us yet. I don’t believe there is any alteration to the committee’s report.

“Only the authentic report of the committee will be submitted for consideration. So, all that is being said remains in the realm of speculation.

“I have asked the chairman of the committee and she told me that there has been nothing like that (alteration)”, he stated.

Recall that both the Senate and the House had announced last week that the bill would be passed before July 14.
