Nigerians have taken to twitter to express their anger on President Buhari’s latest appointment of Lauretta Onochie as National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission representing Delta State.
CSONews24 had earlier reported that President Buhari appointed Lauretta Onochie, three others appointed as INEC Commissioners.
The development however got Nigerians talking as many described it as very offensive and extremely partisan.
@AbdulMahmud01: Who knows the twitter handle of the Minority Leader of the Senate, Sen Abaribe?
Lauretta Onochie’s nomination MUST blocked. It is offensive and damn partisan!
@OLASUNKANMICFCR: Great oracle, almost all INEC commissioners are card carrying members of one of the 2 major parties but now nominating an aid to d president is even worse. We know d 9th assembly is an extension of d presidency, I don’t think this wld scale through, little shame supposed dey nah.
@AimThaMachine_: Lauretta Onochie is a card carrying member of APC and as thus, this nomination is invalid. INEC committee MUST be neutral..
Reject Laurette Onochie Immediately !!!!
@uselessPogba: This is done to remove our mind from the protest. We know the game. They want to form another topic for discussion.
However, Onochie is the Special Assistant to the President on Social Media.
