Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma has cautioned Nigerians against forcing and blackmailing President Muhammadu Buhari into signing the Electoral Act Amendment Bill into law.


Uzodinma who spoke with journalists in Owerri, Imo State, said Buhari had the constitutional backing to study the bill and address areas he is not comfortable with and urged Nigerians to allow the President to do his job.


Reports had emerged yesterday that Buhari will sign the bill on Friday but amid the delay, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had accused the All Progressives Congress, (APC), of attempting to extend Buhari’s tenure.


The PDP alleged that tenure elongation was the reason for Buhari’s delay in signing the bill into law.
