There are indications that the 2019 general elections might face serious crisis if nothing is done urgently by the Presidency and the National Assembly to address the current constitutional and funding hiccups staring the exercise in the face.
Investigations carried out by New Telegraph revealed that, exactly 167 days to the conduct of the February 16, 2019 Presidential and National Assembly elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), there are apparent constitutional and funding crises in waiting.
According to the INEC timetable for the 2019 general elections, the governorship and State Houses of Assembly polls are also to be conducted on March 2, 2019.
One of the impending hiccups is that the Electoral Act Amendment Bill to be used in the conduct of the elections by INEC has not been signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari even as the 30-day constitutional duration for signing it into law expired on Sunday.
