The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar said the Electoral Act of 2022 signed by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), in May last year, has laid the groundwork for free, fair and credible elections on February 25 and March 11, 2023.
Malami, made this claim at the 67th session of the State House Ministerial Briefing organised by the Presidential Communications Team, at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.
Malami’s claim comes barely 48 hours to the presidential and National Assembly elections holding on Saturday, February 25.
According to the AGF, the Act embodies enough legislative, political and administrative reforms to ensure smooth electoral processes in 2023 and in subsequent elections.
He noted that the piece of legislation has also restricted foreign interference through illicit financial flows.
However, the Buhari regime has come under intense fire in recent times due to the crisis ensuing from its new naira policy implemented by the Central Bank.
Exactly one week ago, the President, in a televised broadcast, announced that only old N200 notes will remain legal tender, and that, until April 10.
