Senate rejects Buhari’s REC nominee over state of origin

The Senate on Thursday approved the nomination of Ambassador Rufus Akeju (Lagos) and Dr. Mahmuda Isah (Kebbi) as Resident Electoral Commissioners of the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The  nomination of Ahmad Bello Mahmud was however rejected based on the recommendation by the Senate Committee on INEC in its report which was adopted.

Mahmud was alleged not to be an indigene of Zamfara State but Sokoto State.
