A group of youths and pro-democracy activists this morning (Friday) stormed the Lagos residence of the acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 Presidential Election, late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola with placards, asking President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently sign into law the new Electoral Reforms Bill sent to him by the 8th National Assembly for his assent.
The activists who are apparently not satisfied with the prolonged delay in the signing into law the new Electoral Reforms Bill sent to the President over a year ago, told Channels Television reporter ground at the MKO Abiola’s residence in Ikeja, capital of Lagos State this morning that they will want President Buhari to urgently sign the Bill into law.
Armed with the placards with inscriptions such as: “We want Electoral Reforms”, the youth marched around the premises of the late Pro-democracy icon chanting solidarity songs and waving their placards.
Prompt News recalls that President Buhari declined to give his assent to the new Electoral Reforms Bill sent to him by the 8th National Assembly under the leadership of Dr. Bukola Saraki
before the 2019 Presidential Election pointing out that the timing was too close to the General Elections.
