Recent reports claim there would be a temporary change of leadership at INEC
– This new development is expected to last until federal lawmakers confirm the reappointment of INEC boss, Mahmood Yakubu
– Yakubu’s tenure was recently extended by President Muhammadu Buhari
The head of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu, is expected to hand over to an acting chairman on Monday, November 9.
According to The Guardian, the INEC boss is reportedly stepping aside at the electoral commission pending when his recent reappointment by the president is confirmed by the Senate.
INEC in an invitation to journalists said the handing over ceremony will be held at the conference hall of the commission’s headquarters in Abuja at 2pm.
Yakubu is expected to handover to one of the seven national commissioners whose tenure will not lapse before November 9.
