The Senate Committee on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) led by the chairman, Suleiman Nazif (APC Bauchi North) has embarked on the screening of the Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs).
The committee has also assured Nigerians that they will take deliberate steps and diligence in the course of the screening exercise, such that will lead to results that can stand the test of time.
Speaking during the screening, the chairman, Senator Suleiman Nazif, said the committee is conscious of the fact that they have a mandate from the people and a covenant with the Nigerian people, therefore, they cannot afford to lose focus in the course of the screening exercise.
“The overall development of the country will remain constant in our deliberations and process of the screening exercise. As true representatives of the people, our greatest preoccupation is to ensure that we screen the best crop of people that will provide excellent services that will ensure free, fair, transparent and credible elections in Nigeria,” Nazif said.
He added that the committee will enhance the confidence of the people towards election matters.
“We are in an era of positive change aimed at emancipating the people from all manners of electoral manipulations and injustice. Therefore, the interest and comfort of all Nigerians will ever remain our primary duty and focus throughout this screening exercise,” Nazife added.
