INEC: Senate Minority Caucus asks Buhari to withdraw Onochie’s nomination


The Senate Minority Caucus said on Tuesday asked President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw the nomination of his Special Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie as a National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The caucus led by the Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe in a statement in Abuja said the nomination was in clear violation of the constitution which the president swore to uphold.

They noted that Buhari, by nominating Onochie, “has willfully gone against the constitution that he swore to uphold.”

Part of the statement read, “Item F, paragraph 14 of the Third Schedule of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) forbids a card-carrying member of a political party to be a member of INEC.
