INEC Commissioners & Ministerial Screening
In response to questions regarding the eligibility of INEC to conduct elections in Kogi and Bayelsa States, the Federal Government of Nigeria has nominated Mahmood Yakubu as the new Chairman of INEC, and five others as national commissioners.
The announcement was made after consultation at the 1st Council of State meeting presided over by President Buhari. If the Senate confirms the nominees, INEC will be constitutionally empowered to form a quorum and thus hold elections.
On another note, in the screening process of ministerial nominees, which began on October 13, over 25 of 36 nominees have been screened. Tuesday, October 27 has been fixed for the next exercise.
