Tinubu Appoints 9 INEC Resident Electoral Commissioners For 9 States

Date:

President Bola Tinubu has given his approval for the appointment of nine new Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), with each serving a five-year term. This important announcement was made by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale. It is essential to note that the Senate’s confirmation is a requisite for these appointments.

The President’s decision to appoint these RECs is rooted in his authority granted under Section 154(1) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (Amended) and Section six of the Electoral Act (2022), demonstrating his dedication to enhancing the electoral process in Nigeria.

The appointed Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) include: Mr. Isah Ehimeakne for Edo; Mr. Bamidele Agbede for Ekiti State; Mr. Jani Bello for Gombe; Dr. Taiye Ilayasu for Kwara; Dr. Bunmi Omoseyindemi for Lagos State; Alhaji Yahaya Bello for Nasarawa State; Prof. Mohammed Yalwa for Niger; Dr. Anugbum Onuoha for Rivers; and Mr. Abubakar Dambo for Zamfara.

These newly appointed RECs are expected to maintain the highest standards of professionalism and ethical conduct as they fulfill their roles. President Tinubu aims to establish a new and sustainable standard for transparent, fair, and conflict-free electoral conduct in Nigeria, emphasising his dedication to the country’s democratic process.
