The Senate, on Thursday, rejected the nomination of Ahmed Bello Mahmud as a Resident Electoral Commissioner representing Zamfara State.
The Red Chamber, however, confirmed the nomination of Rufus Akeju and Mahmud Isah representing Lagos and Kebbi states, respectively.
The decision of the upper legislative chamber was sequel to a report by the Senate committee on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) headed by Senator Suleiman Nafiz.
Sen. Nafiz told the Senate there was a letter from Governor Abdulaziz Abubakar Yari of Zamfara State against the nominee.
He also noted that the nominee did not gain the support of stakeholders in the state on the matter.
