The Senate has confirmed the remaining three Resident Electoral Commissioners for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) nominated by President Bola Tinubu.
The nominees are Bunmi Omoseyindemi from Lagos State, Anugbum Onuoha from Rivers State and Isma’ila Kaura Moyi from Zamfara State.
The trio were not present when the other seven nominees were confirmed yesterday despite calls for a thorough review of their credentials with reports revealing some of them having strong links to political parties.
The seven nominees confirmed yesterday are Etekamba Umoren – Akwaibom; Isha Ehimeakne from Edo; Oluwatoyin Babalola- Abubakar Ahmed –Shehu Wahab –Aminu Idris – Mohammed Abubakar Sadiq.
The confirmation follows Tinubu’s request for confirmation of the nomination of the RECs for INEC in accordance with the provisions of Section 154(1) of the Constitution.
Tinubu had last week approved the appointment of 10 new RECs for INEC for a five-year term each.
