Governor Ifeanyi Okowa expressed optimism that the Electoral Bill will be signed by President Muhammadu Buhari this time — and said that the refusal to sign it before the 2019 general elections was political.
Governor Okowa said this at a Town Hall meeting with representatives of #ENDSARS, civil society groups, students, social groups, community youth leaders and other stakeholders in the Delta North Senatorial District.
“We need to re-work our electoral processes. In 2019, the electoral amendment wasn’t signed because of politics. I am sure that it will be signed this time. Hence, as young people, you must get organized so that you too can be a part of the governance process,” he stated.
