An anti-corruption group, Concerned Nigerians, on Monday, warned the Senate against confirming a presidential aide, Lauretta Onochie as an INEC commissioner.

The group, which gave the warning in a letter addressed to the Senate President, said that the red chamber would be setting a dangerous precedence with Onochie’s confirmation since it has become public knowledge that she is a card carrying of the All Progressives Congress and a political aide.

It, therefore, argued that her confirmation would violate the provisions of both the Electoral Act and the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria (as amended).
