President Muhammadu Buhari’s nominee for the position of INEC Commissioner, Lauretta Onochie has been red carded by the National Assembly.
Mrs. Onochie had come under serious criticism in the week gone by, for denying her support for Buhari and the All Progressives Congress party.
Despite clear evidence that she was/is an All Progressives Congress member and a key figure in the Buhari Support Organisation (BSO), Ms. Onochie stood by her words.
According to Senator Kabiru Gaya, who is the Chairman of the Screening Committee, Onochie who is the President’s Social Media Aide failed to meet some necessary criteria, especially that of the Federal Character Principles.
The news comes as a thing of joy to most Nigerians who felt having a politician who sides with the ruling party in the capacity of National INEC Commissioner does not speak well for the Nation’s democracy.
