BREAKING: Senate Bows To Pressure, Rejects Lauretta Onochie as INEC Commissioner

 

The Senate has rejected the nomination of Ms Lauretta Onochie as a National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

 

Chairman of the Committee, Kabiru Gaya, in his report this Tuesday morning, July 13, 2021, said that Onochie did not satisfy the provisions of the Federal Character Principles.

 

The Senate at the committee of the whole subsequently voted against her nomination.

 

 The nomination of Onochie by President Muhamadu Buhari, to whom she social media aide, had attracted widespread condemnation by critics who accused her of being a partisan member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and thus not qualified to serve as an INEC Commissioner.

 

Onochie, however, claimed to have resigned from APC when she appeared for screening before the Senate last week.
