Presidential aide, Lauretta Onochie has denied involvement in partisan politics, telling the Senate Committee on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) she does not belong to any political party.
Onochie was screened as an INEC National Commissioner on Thursday despite public outcry over her nomination by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“So, as I am sitting down here, I am not a member of any political party in this country,” Onochie told the lawmakers in Abuja, insisting that she stopped partisan politics after her principal won a second term in office in 2019.
“Since 2019, I have not had anything to do with any political organization in this country. Even the Buhari support organisations, I have not had anything to do with them since 2019,” Onochie who was nominated to represent Delta State, maintained.
“So, when APC decided to do a proper registration of their members and revalidate their membership, I did not take part in that exercise.”
