The Senate President made this known following the heavy criticism showered on the presiding officers by aggrieved Nigerians who feel annoyed over a section which prohibited the electronic transmission of election results.
“The National Assembly is embarking on the amendment of the Electoral Act. Probably by next week or within the next two weeks.
“It’s very important that those who feel very strongly about any amendment that they think should be effected in the electoral act should contact or talk to their members of House of Representatives as well as Distinguished Senators.
“I want to state categorically clear here that presiding officers are not the ones to determine what is coming or what is not,” Sen President Lawan said.
