Electoral Act will ensure free, fair elections – Malami

The President of Nigeria, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), signed the Electoral Act of 2022, in May of last year, has laid the groundwork for elections on February 25 and March 11, 2023, which will be free, fair, and credible.

At the 67th session of the State House Ministerial Briefing, which was held at the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja and was organized by the Presidential Communications Team, Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, made this claim.

Malami makes the claim just 48 hours before the elections for president and National Assembly on Saturday, February 25.

The AGF asserts that the Act contains sufficient legislative, political, and administrative reforms to guarantee orderly elections in 2023 and subsequent elections.
