Nigeria’s rubber stamp senate has commenced the screening of Lauretta Onochie who is a member of the ruling APC and dictator Buhari’s Special Assistant on Social Media. Other nominees are also being screened by the rubber stamp senate.
In a controversial move, recall that dictator Buhari had nominated Lauretta Onochie for the role of Electoral Commissioner for the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC], sparking outrage amongst Nigerians over her obvious partisanship.
The nomination of Buhari’s aide is in violation of section 156(1) of Nigeria’s Constitution which abundantly states that a person with political affiliation is unfit to occupy any position in INEC.
The APC regime of repression led by dictator Buhari is clandestinely working to keep power by all means beyond 2023 after six years of oppression, imposition of poverty, unemployment, inflation, incompetence, accumulation of foreign loans and outright mismanagement of Nigeria’s resources.
Recall also that on March 24 this year, Citizens Alert reported how APC’s interim National Chairman Mai Mala boasted that the APC will rule Nigeria for 40 years despite the party’s misrule during the last six years of its woeful existence.
To further their ambition, the party has placed its errand boys in key positions in the House of Representatives and Senate, Femi Gbajabiamila and Ahmad Lawan respectively, designed to carry out every wish of dictator Buhari in their desperate ploy to actualise their clandestine aims.
It will be a surprise, therefore, if Lauretta Onochie is disqualified by a rubber stamp senate led by Ahmad Lawan who, on August 28, 2019 vowed never to “fail” the dictator.
