Nigeria is the most populous nation.
Yet today the Nigerian Senate has rejected the clause seeking to provide for the right of Nigerians in the Diaspora to vote during elections. A proposal that many diaspora organisations have been working and defending.
The Bill seeks to Alter the Provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 to Provide for Diaspora Voting; and for Related Matters.
29 Senators voted in support, while 62 rejected.
Similar the national assembly rejected by 240 to 58 votes.
