An Abuja-based rights activist, Comrade Deji Adeyanju, has opined that Senate President Ahmed Lawan, House of Representatives Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila; and all those against the amendment of the Electoral Act risk jail term when their tenure ends in 2023.

There have been calls for the amendment of the Electoral Act.

Senator Istifanus Gyang (PDP-Plateau North) called for the amendment of the Electoral Act for Nigeria to have credible elections. He stated that the Electoral Act currently in use is outdated and does take into consideration the current realities.

He also noted that until Nigeria has an electoral act with the necessary amendments, elections in the country will continue to be a sham.
