Twitter is not feeling President Muhammadu Buhari’s request for the senate to confirm his media aide, Lauretta Onochie, as a commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

According to TheCable, Buhari’s request was contained in a letter read by Senate President Ahmad Lawan on the floor of the upper legislative chamber on Tuesday.

Onochie who hails from Delta state is currently the president’s special assistant on social media. She recently had a row on social media popular singer Wizkid, after he called out the president for not taking action on the complaints of Nigerians protesting against police brutality.

The president premised his request on paragraph 14 (1f) of the constitution. Apart from Onochie, Buhari also asked the senate to confirm Mohammed Sani (Katsina), Kunle Ajayi (Ekiti) and Seidu Ahmed (Jigawa) as commissioners of the electoral commission.

The appointment has however displeased many Nigerians so far with many saying that she’s ineligible for the position. See few reactions below:
