President Muhammadu Buhari signed the bill into law on Friday.

The bill also stipulates that a deputy governor who succeeds a governor can no longer contest for that office more than once after the initial tenure.

Buhari's Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly Matters, Ita Enang, disclosed this to news men at the State House, Abuja on Friday.

Enang, however,  explained that with new law (Act 16), persons who have taken the oath of President or governor once can only contest one more time afterwards.
