The Senate has confirmed the nomination of Professor Sani Muhammad Adam, as National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) representing the North Central zone.

The confirmation of Adam was subsequent to a presentation and consideration of a report by its Committee on INEC.

Chairman of the Committee, Senator Kabiru Gaya (APC-Kano), in his presentation, disclosed that the request to confirm Adam by President Buhari was made in line with Sections 153(1)(f) and 154(1) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

After the suspension of the confirmation of the nominee by the Senate last Tuesday, Senator Gaya said, the committee, in exercising its mandate investigated a petition against the nominee and got clarifications concerning his personal life, work experience, suitability, competence and integrity for appointment as National Electoral Commissioner.

Gaya said, “After a thorough investigation of the petition against the nominee, the committee found that the petition was weak and that the reason for his termination, not dismissal as alleged by the petitioner, was not based on gross misconduct, but on a rationalisation policy of the Federal Government.

“The court judgment was based on whether or not his appointment should have been terminated and this has nothing to do with his integrity or moral uprightness.”

On the basis of the committee’s recommendations, Adam was, subsequently, confirmed as the National Commissioner of INEC.
