Former INEC Boss, Jega, Reacts To The Appointment Of Onochie As INEC Commissioner

Published

on

Professor Attahiru Jega, the former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, has asked President Muhammadu buhari to withdraw Lauretta Onochie’s nomination as an INEC Commissioner.

 

Jega claims that her appointment as an INEC employee jeopardizes the commission’s integrity.

 

Many Nigerians have objected to President buhari’s appointment of Lauretta Onochie as INEC Commissioner since she is a member of the All Progressives Congress.

 

Last week, Onochie told the Senate Committee on INEC that she is not a member of any political party at this time. After the general election in 2019, she announced her retirement from politics.

 

Jega encouraged President Muhammadu buhari to withdraw her nomination during an appearance on Channels Television on Sunday, July 11th, 2021. He predicted that any election overseen by her would be contentious.

 

Jega believes Onochie’s appointment will harm INEC’s reputation. He also stated that the president must use caution while appointing electoral officers.

 

He questioned Onochie’s appointment because of her role and aggressive participation in the 2019 general election. He believes the issue surrounding her nomination could have been avoided. He recommended buhari to withdraw his nomination as soon as possible.

 

Jega also slammed the national assembly leadership’s decision to obstruct the intended electronic transmission of election results. He said that transmitting election results electronically will ensure transparency and accountability.

    take a large amount of work? I am brand new to blogging however I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and views online.

    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Thankyou!

    I think what you posted was actually very reasonable.

    However, think on this, what if you added a little information?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a title to maybe grab a person’s attention? I mean Former INEC Boss, Jega, Reacts To The Appointment Of Onochie As INEC Commissioner | 50minds.com is a little vanilla.
    You ought to look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article
    titles to get people to click. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about
    everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might make your blog a little livelier.
