The Senate has approved 19 Resident Electoral Commissioners for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Following discussion of the Senate Committees on Electoral Matters’ reports, their nomination was approved on Wednesday, October 5.

The committee’s chairman, Kabiru Gaya (APC, Kano), claimed in his report that the candidates were questioned about their partisanship and party affiliation.

The petitions against four nominees, which allegedly accused them of being members of political parties, partisanship, compromise, and ineptitude, according to Gaya, who insisted that they are not registered members of any political party, had no merit.
