Senate Rejects Lauretta Onochie As INEC Commissioner by dre11(m): 12:03pm On Jul 13, 2021
The senate has rejected the nomination of Lauretta Onochie, presidential aide, as a commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The upper legislative chamber rejected her appointment after Kabiru Gaya, chairman of the INEC committee, presented a report in plenary.

Onochie was nominated for the job by President Muhammadu Buhari in October 2020.

Her nomination sparked outrage over concerns that she is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), but the presidential aide said she resigned her membership of the ruling party in 2019.

TheCable found Onochie’s claim to be false.

There have been demonstrations against Onochie’s nomination by different civil society organisations.

While presenting the report on Thursday, Gaya said Onochie was disqualified on federal character principles, adding that there is currently a serving commissioner from Delta state, where Onochie hails from.

After furthering soiling her name, I hope the old woman can return to the beer parlour where she belongs.

She'll do better as a commissioner there.

Kudos to the Senate for allowing common sense to prevail over sentiments and politics.
It would have been very stupid and the height of impunity for the Lawan led senate to accept her.

This is the greatest achievement for the rubber stamp people..... At least, they used their senses this time.

Someone that bias should never have a business in INEC. You can't tell us you changed your ways within 1 to 2 years and getting nominated by Mr integrity.
