The Senate has dropped Lauretta Onochie and one other as INEC Commissioners

This is coming after several complaints from many Nigerians about her partisanship.

Chairman of the Committee, Kabiru Gaya, in his report, said Onochie did not satisfy the provisions of the Federal Character Principles. The Senate at the committee of the whole subsequently voted against her nomination.

Recall that President, Muhammadu Buhari, had in a letter dated 12th October, 2020, and read by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, the following week, sought the Senate confirmation for Onochie and other nominees.
