1 min read

Lauretta Onochie, an alleged loyalist of President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling APC government has shockingly lost the opportunity to be confirmed as the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission.

This was following her nomination by the presidency for the juicy position.

Senator Kabir Gaya while engaging journalists as to the breaking news pertaining to Onochie’s rejection said her appointment breached the Federal Character principles.

He cited to back this section 14(1)(3) of the 1999 constitution, not when someone is already a Commissioner from her zone.
