Civil Society Groups working on gender mainstreaming and governance in Nigeria have called on President Muhammadu Buhari to forward the name of the new acting INEC boss, Amina Zakari to the National Assembly for confirmation.
The groups made the call on Tuesday in Abuja while reacting to calls by some groups for her removal, insisting that Change would not be complete without the inclusion of women at the helm of affairs
The appointment of the new acting INEC boss Amiina Zakari has come under heavy criticism recently especially from the main party in opposition, the People’s Democratic Party
It is against this backdrop that the civil society organization is calling for gender inclusiveness to be felt across party lines for equity and fairness
Amina Zakari was appointed as the acting Chairperson of the Independent national Electoral Commission by President Muhammadu Buhari hours after its former chairman, Attahiru Jega bowed out of office
