Doguwa could faces sanction over comments on Electoral Act

The Chief Whip of the House of Representatives, Alhassan Ado Doguwa, may face sanction from his colleagues over his comments on the last week amendments to the Electoral Act, 2010, done by the House.

Doguwa, on Monday, said that he never supported the amendments and that they were meant to target President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He also described the amendments as “mischievous” and that they would not stand, calling on Buhari not to assent to the bill when presented to him.

However, it was gathered that his colleagues were angered by his comments, particularly as a ranking member who was also part of the House leadership.

It was learnt that a motion would be raised on the floor of the House on Wednesday to address the matter, with a likelihood of sanctions to be meted out against the Kano lawmaker.

Although the gravity of the sanctions could not be ascertained, sources said the lawmakers were “very, very angry with him.”
