Mrs Lauretta Onochie, SA to President Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has finally dropped the nomination of Lauretta Onochie as a national commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports President Buhari instead asked Senate to replace Onochie with May Agbamuche as INEC Commissioner.
Senate President Ahmad Lawan read the letter during Tuesday’s plenary session.
Others are Mrs May Agbamuche Mbu, Delta State, National Commissioner; and Okeagu Kenneth Nnamdi, Abia State, South East National Commissioner.
President Buhari’s nomination of Mrs May Agbamuche Mbu as INEC commissioner representing Delta state effectively ends the hopes of Lauretta Onochie.
Ms Onochie, currently a presidential aide, was appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari in October 2020 as an INEC commissioner to represent Delta State.
