Senate confirms New INEC National Commissioner


Senate has confirmed a new National commissioner, Professor Sani Muhammed Adam (North Central) for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Recall that the Prof Adam’s appointment had earlier been stepped down on grounds of not being cleared from petitions surrounding his nomination, he was given a nod on Thursday, July 14 after report of the Committee on INEC was considered.

Chairman of the Committee, Senator Kabiru Gaya (APC, Kaduna) while presenting the report said the investigation by the panel revealed that the petition against the nominee has nothing to do with his integrity.
