Buhari announced his decision in a letter to the National Assembly where he cited several reasons for declining assent to the electoral act ammendment.

President Buhari’s letter was read on Tuesday’s plenary session at the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Buhari noted that the mandatory use of direct primaries for all political parties in the country will be too expensive to execute, saying that it will put a financial burden on Nigeria’s slim resources.

He said that conducting direct primary elections will be tasking, explaining that since such mode of election means a large turnout of voters, the move would stretch the security agencies.

Buhari also expressed fears that the proposed mandatory use of direct primaries will amount to the violation of citizens’ rights will be violated and will lead to marginalisation for smaller political parties.

He said the proposed use of mandatory direct primary elections will also lead to more litigations by party members.
