INEC national commissioners: senate screens Laureta Onochie, others

Lauretta Onochie

The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, on Wednesday, asked the Committee on the Independent National Electoral Commission to screen for confirmation, the appointments of Lauretta Onochie, and five others as INEC commissioners.

This is despite protests among the Peoples Democratic Party members in the red chamber who faulted the idea of making Onochie, a card-carrying member of the All Progressives Congress as an INEC Commissioner to represent Delta State on the board of the commission.

The Senate Committee on INEC, headed by Senator Kabiru Gaya, has four weeks to conclude the screening and report back to the red chamber.
