‘Buhari’ s Aide, Lauretta Onochie Is Not Qualified As INEC Commissioner— Angry Reactions Of Nigerians Trail Her Senate Screening

Nigerians on social media have condemned a request by Senate President Ahmad Lawan asking the committee on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to screen Lauretta Onochie, a presidential aide, as commissioner of the electoral body.

President Muhammadu Buhari in October 2020 asked the upper legislative chamber to screen and confirm Onochie.



The recent request by the Senate President has attracted the outrage of Nigerians, who condemned the nomination because, according to them, Onochie is partisan. She is a staunch member of the All Progressives Congress.

Many have questioned the rationale for her selection, alleging that the ruling APC wants to rig the 2023 presidential elections.
