This came as the regime faced heavy criticism for nominating some persons alleged to be “card-carrying members” of the governing All Progressives Congress (APC).

Mr. Buhari had on July 26 forwarded the names of 19 nominees as REC into the nation’s electoral body to the National Assembly for confirmation.

But on Wednesday, Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, said that the regime cannot immediately throw out the names of any nominees based on allegations flying in the media space.

“As to the nominees that are being challenged by social media warriors and by some critics, I don’t think it is the business of the President to immediately throw out a nominee based on allegations which have not been proven,” the Minister told reporters after the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Mr. Mohammed, after touting those challenging the integrity of the nominees as “social media warriors”, argued that those already nominated by Buhari’s regime would still be drilled by the members of the National Assembly.

“I think the whole idea is that these people will go for confirmation in the National Assembly; the same questions that are being raised in the public domain will be asked there,” he added.

While urging the people to wait till the nominees face the parliamentarians, the minister asked the critics to allow the process takes its course rather than embarking on a media trial.
