President Buhari’s spokesperson, Femi Adesina, said in a assertion on Tuesday, October 27, 2020 that a letter has already been sent to the National Assembly to affirm the nomination.

Buhari said the nomination was in accordance with the provision of Section 154 (1) of the 1999 structure (as amended).

“I am pleased to present for confirmation by the Senate, the nomination of Professor Mahmood Yakubu for appointment as Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for a second and final term,” Buhari said in a letter addressed to Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.

Yakubu was first appointed INEC chairman in November 2015 by Buhari months after he grew to become the first opposition candidate to defeat an incumbent to turn out to be president.

Yakubu’s tenure has been a blended bag of credible elections and others plagued by irregularities and accusations of bias.
