Former Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki has described direct primary election as the best for political parties of properly done.

He, therefore, urged politicians not to allow the debate generated by the approval of direct primary for political parties by the National Assembly to scuttle the process of having a new electoral law for the country.

Saraki made these remarks with journalists in Ilorin, Kwara State capital, on Sunday at the ninth memorial prayer organised in honour of his late father, Dr Olusola Saraki.

He stated that the most important thing is for President Muhammadu Buhari, to sign the bill for the benefit of Nigerians.

He said:

“Direct primary is best for political parties if properly done. But I am sure Nigerians are not prepared for it because there is still a lot of work to be done.

“But now that the National Assembly has passed it, we should make the best out of the situation rather than allowing the controversy, which is one item, to throw away the other good parts of the bill.

“What is important, is for the President to sign it and enable Nigerians to benefit from the other parts.”

“What is important, is for the President to sign it and enable Nigerians to benefit from the other parts.”
