The controversy trailing the amendment of the Electoral Act which reordered election sequence in the country took another dimension Tuesday.
The two presiding officers are expected to read the letters to their colleagues at plenary between today and Thursday.
Some senators had rejected the amended timetable saying that Buhari is the target.
President Muhammadu Buhari has rejected the amendment to the Electoral Act, which meant to change the country's elections sequence, Daily Trust has learnt.
"Please accept Mr Senate President the assurances of my highest consideration", the president stated.
Some All Progressives Congress senators had kicked against the adoption of the report, accusing the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, of influencing it.
The Presidential letter entitled "PRESIDENTIAL DECISION TO WITHHOLD ASSENT TO THE ELECTORAL AMENDMENT BILL 2018", was read by Saraki on the floor of the upper chamber yesterday.
"We know that with the support of Nigerians, any candidate that emerges on our platform ahead of 2019 will clinically defeat President Buhari at the polls and lead our nation back to the path of progress, national cohesion and a vibrant economy".
Both the Senate and House of Representatives agreed to the earlier amendment by the House of Representatives that the National Assembly election will come first, followed by governorship and state Houses of Assembly and finally the Presidential election which will now come last.
