Prof Attahiru Jega, a former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has asked the Senate not to confirm Lauretta Onochie as a National Commissioner of INEC.
Onochie, who was nominated by President Muhammadu Buhari, was among those screened at the upper legislative chamber of the National Assembly on Thursday.
A source had told Daily Trust that the result of the screening would be out on Tuesday.
Onochie’s nomination had sparked outrage from civil society groups, opposition lawmakers and even within the All Progressives Congress (APC).Many have argued that she is “too partisan” to be a commissioner in an institution like INEC. (DailyTrust)
