The National Working Committee (NWC) of the People’s Democratic Party led by its Chairman, Uche Secondus has asked the National Assembly to reject and not to confirm the nomination of Lauretta Onochie as Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) Commissioner.

The NWC who staged a peaceful protest at the first gate of the National Assembly said Lauretta will pollute the Independent National Electoral Commission’s environment if confirmed by the National Assembly.

Prince Uche Secondus, who addressed the press, told Senate Minority Leader, Eyinaya Abaribe, to hand over the party’s protest letter to the leadership of the Senate, adding that the PDP vehemently opposed the nomination of the former Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media.

It would be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari in October 2020 nominated four commissioners for inclusion in the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). However, out of the five nominees whose names were sent via a letter to the Nigeria Senate including, Lauretta Onochie, Kunle Ajayi, Seidu Ahmed and Mohammed Sani, that of Onochie raised much dust.
