Also in another letter, Buhari sought the confirmation of Ateru Garba Madami as the resident electoral commissioner (REC) representing Niger state.

“In accordance with the provision of section 154(1) of the 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as amended, I write to forward to the senate the name of Ateru Garba Madami for confirmation as a replacement for resident electoral commissioner representing Niger state. The CV of the nominee is attached herewith,” the letter read.

“It would be recalled that the senate had earlier rejected the initial nominee on the ground that he hails from the same local government area and senatorial district with a serving national commissioner.”
