Background
share close
The Senate has rejected the nomination of Lauretta Onochie as an Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) National Commissioner.
 
The rejection on Tuesday followed the massive outcry that has trailed her nomination, especially from members of the opposition and civil society organisations who claim she is a card-carrying member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
 
Former INEC Chairman, Attahiru Jega, is also among those who have kicked against the appointment.
 
President Muhammadu Buhari had written to the Senate in October 2020, to confirm the appointment of Onochie who is currently his media aide on Social Media, and three others as Commissioners of INEC.
 
In her introductory remarks during her screening last Thursday, Onochie, however, insisted she is not partisan.
 
Meanwhile, The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has hailed the rejection of the nomination of Lauretta Onochie, as a National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) by the National Assembly, describing it as a triumph of the will of Nigerians and a victory for democracy.
 
The party also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to look for another credible Nigerian to fill the position and not re-present Onochie, who has an affinity with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Senate again.
