President Muhammadu Buhari has been attacked by the Senate Minority Caucus over his decision to nominate his media aide, Lauretta Onochie as national commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission in total disregard to the country’s constitutional provisions.

According to Punch, while speaking on Tuesday, the Senate minority caucus said that Buhari flouted the nation’s constitution with the appointment of his media aide, Lauretta Onochie as INEC commissioner.

The opposition senators in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja and signed by their leader, however, asked Buhari to withdraw Onochie’s nomination.

They noted that Buhari, by nominating Onochie, “has willfully gone against the constitution that he swore to uphold.”

Part of the statement read, “Item F, paragraph 14 of the Third Schedule of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) forbids a card-carrying member of a political party to be a member of INEC.

“The Minority Caucus of the Senate is against this nomination and call on Mr President to withdraw it.”
