The Senate has confirmed the remaining three Resident Electoral Commissioners for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) nominated by President Bola Tinubu.
The nominees are Dr. Bunmi Omoseyindemi from Lagos State, Dr. Anugbum Onuoha from Rivers State and Mr. Isma’ila Kaura Moyi from Zamfara State.
The trio were not present when the other seven nominees were confirmed yesterday.
The seven nominees confirmed yesterday are Mr Etekamba Umoren – Akwaibom; Mr Isha Ehimeakne from Edo; Barr. Oluwatoyin Babalola- Ekiti; Mr Abubakar Ahmed – Gombe; Shehu Wahab – Kwara; Aminu Idris – Nasarawa; Mohammed Abubakar Sadiq – Niger.

Tinubu had last week approved the appointment of 10 new RECs for INEC for a five-year term each.
