Breaking: Buhari reappoints Prof Yakubu as INEC Chairman

President Muhammadu Buhari has reappointed Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, for a second term in office.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Tuesday.

President Buhari, in a letter to President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, said: “In accordance with the provision of Section 154 (1) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended), I am pleased to present for confirmation by the Senate, the nomination of Professor Mahmood Yakubu for appointment as Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for a second and final term.”

Prof Yakubu was first appointed by President Buhari in November 2015.


  1. Which President? Who appointed Yakubu? Some group of people who have hijacked governance? Without being voted in,they carry on making Presidential decisions. Where is the President Buhari? Why can't he come out to have a live interactive session with the people who voted him into power? This is pure criminality. There is no governance going on. Just a lot of manipulation and deceit. You can deceive some people all the time, or even all people some of the time. But you can never deceive all of the people all of the time.
