The Senate on Wednesday referred the name of the Special Assistant on Social Media to the President, Lauretta Onochie, to its Committee on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for screening as a National Commissioner of INEC representing Delta State.

This is coming about eight months after President Muhammdu Buhari forwarded Onochie’s name and five other nominees to the Senate for confirmation.
