Buhari’s Aide now Election Umpire


Despite stiff opposition to her nomination, the Senate has confirmed President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide, Lauretta Onochie, as a commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission.

Mrs Onochie was on Thursday screened by the red chamber and subsequently confirmed.

Many Nigerians and the leading opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, had warned the senate against confirming the president’s aide.

The PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, and members of the party’s National Working Committee had said Onochie is a card carrying member of the ruling All Progressives Congress and not fit to be a commissioner in the electoral body.
