President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday forwarded the names of 28 nominees for confirmation as Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Buhari made the nomination in a letter read by Senate President, Bukola Saraki, at plenary today.
The letter, which is from the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, sought legislative approval for the nomination of the 28 Nigerians as RECs of the INEC.
Osinbajo had transmitted the nominations to the Senate in February, when President Muhammadu Buhari was on medical vacation in the United Kingdom.
The nominations followed the expiration of the tenures of RECs in 28 states.
