Buhari Re-Appoints INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu For Second Term


President Muhammadu Buhari has re-nominated Prof. Mahmood Yakubu to the House of Representatives to run for a second term.

President Buhari confirmed the re-appointment of Prof. Yakubu in a letter to Senate President Senator Ahmed Lawan.

The President 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.

The reappointment is, however, subject to confirmation by the national assembly.

On October 22 2015, President Buhari appointed Prof. Yakubu as chairman of the Electoral Commission, replacing Prof. Attahiru Jega.

Prior to his appointment, a commissioner of the commission, Hajiya Amina Zakari, was chairing the commission as an interim.
