In a press statement posted on his Twitter page on Friday, Atiku commending the legislative arm of government on passage of the Electoral Bill said; “Now that the legal framework for the 2023 elections is in place following President Muhammadu Buhari’s assent to the Electoral Bill, INEC needs to roll out the election guidelines in earnest.
“So that the political parties and Nigerians can fully commence the journey to choose their leaders in 2023.
