Lauretta Onochie partisan, should not be INEC commissioner –Aisha Yesufu 


By Henry Okonkwo

Rights activist, Aisha Yesufu, has condemned the Senate’s move to confirm Lauretta Onochie, an aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, as a commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission.

Yusufu took to social media to register her opinion.

She said, “Lauretta Onochie as INEC commissioner is as wrong as wrong can be. She is an APC member. If this is allowed, then expect Garba Shehu as INEC chairman.

“This is a lady that is very partisan, an APC member, not just an APC member, she is a PA to the President on New Media.

“The Senate has rejected her before and now it is time for the Senate to reject her again. The opposition party in the National Assembly should oppose this even if members of the ruling party want to install their own. This is not the way things are going to be done.

“If she gets into office, next thing, we can have someone like Garba Shehu appointed as INEC chairman.”
