BREAKING: Eight months after, Senate sets to clear Lauretta Onochie as INEC National Commissioner


The Senate on Wednesday referred the name of the President’s Special Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, to its Committee on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for screening as a Delta State National Commissioner of INEC.
