The Speaker of the House of Representatives Abbas Tajudeen on Thursday said the 10th House would work to produce a better Electoral Act that would ensure improved elections in the year 2027.

Speaker Abbas noted that the House has already identified some areas in the electoral law that need to be strengthened ahead of the next election cycle.

A statement by his media aide, Musa Krishi quoted the Speaker as saying these when he received a European Union delegation to Nigeria and Economic Community of West African States led by the EU Ambassador to Nigeria, Ms Samuela Isopi, at his office in Abuja.

The 9th National Assembly had reviewed the Electoral Act 2010, leading to the emergence and application of the Electoral Act 2022 for the 2023 elections.

However, the Speaker stated that a further review of the current Act would produce better results in the 2027 elections.
