Senate Suspends Confirmation Of INEC Resident Electoral Commissioners

 MAGU: Senate suspends confirmation of INEC RECs

The Nigerian senate

The senate has suspended the confirmation of the 27 resident electoral commissioners (RECs) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) nominated by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Peter Nwaoboshi, senator representing Delta north, had moved a motion that the exercise be suspended based on the refusal of the executive to accept the senate’s rejection of Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

In their submissions, the lawmakers who contributed to the debate, wondered the relevance of their role if the executive could keep Magu after he was rejected.

The senate therefore shifted screening, which was supposed to begin on Tuesday, by two weeks.
