Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has called on the National Assembly to consider electoral reforms and constitutional amendment.
He made the plea on Wednesday in Sokoto, the capital, when he received the European Union Ambassador and Head of delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS, Mr Ketil Karsen, in Government House.
Tambuwal said that the process would ensure that all the new innovations introduced in the current electoral process were captured constitutionally.
The governor further said that the process would give legal framework that would go along in strengthening and deepening the nation’s democracy.
He said, “As a matter of urgency, NASS should consider starting the process of electoral reforms and constitutional amendments in the interest of the nation.”
In his remarks, Karsen called for peace and respect for the rule of law in the state and Nigeria in general, as according to him that was going to create the atmosphere needed for electoral reforms to thrive.
The EU envoy also discussed issues of health, education, environment and empowerment with Tambuwal during his visit, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.
