Nigerian Senate confirms another INEC National Commissioner

Nomination of Professor Sani Muhammed Adam (North Central) as National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) has been confirmed by the senate. 

Though the confirmation of Prof Adam’s appointment had earlier been stepped down on grounds of not being cleared from petitions surrounding his nomination, he was given a nod on Thursday July 14 after report of the Committee on INEC was considered. 

Chairman of the Committee, Senator Kabiru Gaya (APC, Kaduna) while presenting the report said the investigation by the panel revealed that the petition against the nominee has nothing to do with his integrity.
