Nigerians React As Senate Sets To Clear Lauretta Onochie As INEC Commissioner

Lauretta Onochie

Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has asked the senate panel to screen Lauretta Onochie, an aide to President Muhammadu Buhari for confirmation as a commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Onochie’s nomination by Buhari eight months ago generated opposition by members of the public who argue that she is a registered member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

However, it appears Lawan cares less about the views of Nigerians on Onochie’s political affiliation to the APC as he has ordered that she be screened alongside 5 other nominees.
