Some Lawmakers have blamed the delay in the amendment of the Electoral Act on the ongoing nationwide Registration/Revalidation exercise by the APC.
The bill will be considered and passed when its members, who are in their constituencies to campaign for APC membership, return.
Chairman of the House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Benjamin Kalu, told journalists after the plenary, that the electoral bill is one of the priority legislations of the parliament.
Kalu said that the bill will be out before the middle of the year. That the determination of the House is to get it discharged even before the end of April.
He also said that most members are at their various constituencies now particularly members of APC, doing the membership drive.
“So, in the wisdom of the leadership of the house, it decided to suspend it until we are able to have a fuller house to be able to do the consideration because it is one of those laws that affects the whole nation.”
