INEC: Nigerians Reject Lauretta Onochie’s Nomination As Commissioner


Nigerians have rejected the nomination of Lauretta Onochie as a commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

President Muhammadu Buhari asked the senate to confirm Lauretta Onochie, his media aide, Mohammed Sani (Katsina), Kunle Ajayi (Ekiti), and Seidu Ahmed (Jigawa) as commissioners of the electoral commission. Buhari’s request was contained in a letter read by Senate President Ahmad Lawan on the floor of the upper legislative chamber on Tuesday.

However Nigerians have rejected Onochie’s nomination on the basis that she is a staunch member of a political party. Once the nominations were made, people aggressively took Twitter to show their displeasure

Lauretta, an APC partisan who was also dragged by Wizkid for denying Buhari was old shouldn’t be allowed to oversee an independent electoral commission as that leads to nepotism.
