INEC: Senate Committee On INEC To Screen Prof. Mahmud Yakubu On Thursday.
The Senate Committee on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), will Screen Mahmood Yakubu on Thursday following his appointment as Chairman of the Commission for a second and final term.
The Chairman of the committee, Kabiru Gaya, disclosed this to journalists on Wednesday after the panel submitted the report of the 2021

The Senate received President Muhammadu Buhari’s letter seeking Mr Yakubu’s confirmation on Tuesday. He had on October 27 announced his decision to reappoint the former INEC boss.

The president’s letter was forwarded to the committee on INEC for screening – one which Mr Gaya said will be carried out expeditiously.
