The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday stormed the National Assembly to protest against the nomination of Lauretta Onochie by President Muhammadu Buhari as a National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) representing the South-South.
Led by its National Chairman, Uche Secondus, members of the party stormed the National Assembly complex demanding that Onochie’s nomination be rejected.
Secondus insisted that Onochie’s nomination contravened provisions of the constitution which forbid the nomination of card-carrying members of political offices for the office.
“We are here protesting today to make the final point of total rejection of Lauretta Onochie, that she must be totally rejected by the Senate and National Assembly, she is partisan.
“We don’t need INEC to be polluted. If she’s cleared, then she will be representing one party called APC (All Progressives Congress) and that can cause a lot of problems for our country,” Secondus said.
