2023 General Elections In Great Danger, May Be Seriously Rigged In Favour Of APC, As ‘Reckless’ Presidential Aide, Lauretta Onochie’s Name Resurfaces Again For Senate Screening As INEC National Commissioner, 8 Months After

Emerging report reaching Page 36 on Wednesday, indicates that the Senate is set to begin the screening of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, and 5 other named National Commissioners of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, 8 months after they were nominated.

Onochie and the other 5 persons were nominated in a request to the Senate 8 months ago by the Presidency.

The others nominated on October 12, 2020, are Muhammad Sani Kallah (Katsina State), Kunle Cornelius Ajayi (Ekiti State), Saidu Babura Ahmad (Jigawa State), Sani Muhammad Adam (North Central), and Baba Bila (North-East).

Recall, that earlier on when this was first made public, the opposition Senators had said that by nominating Onochie, President Buhari had “willfully gone against the Constitution he swore to uphold”, and urged him to withdraw her name, as she is a serving and active member of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

However, her name is still on the list to be considered by the Senate Committee on INEC.

While “reluctantly” seconding the motion that the nominations be referred to the Senate Committee for action, the Minority Leader of the Senate, Enyinnaya Abaribe, expressed surprise that Onochie’s name resurfaced again as an INEC National Commissioner Nominee, after the widespread opposition against her nomination, 8 months ago.

He simply said: “We shall meet in the Philippines.”
