Henry Umoru – Abuja
THE Senate on Wednesday rejected the nomination of Raheem Muideen Olalekan as the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) representing Osun State in the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The upper legislative chamber said Olalekan’s confirmation should be deferred until he satisfactorily clears himself of all the allegations levelled against him by a petitioner.
The Senate, however, confirmed the appointment of Dr. Alalibo Sinikiem Johnson from Bayelsa State and Umar Mukhtar Gajiram from Borno State as RECs.
