The acting chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Deputy Air Marshal Ahmed Mu’azu (retired) on Monday in Abuja, swore in Dr. Joseph Chukwuemeka as Resident Electoral Commission (REC).
Mu’azu, while making his first official assignment as the commission’s acting chairman, said that Chukwuemeka, who is from Abia state, has been deployed as REC for Ebonyi.
He said that he has no doubt that Chukwuemeka would fulfill his responsibilities according to the oath he took.
The acting president charged him to be neutral and to act within the laws and regulations that govern his office and the work of the commission.
“You are nominated and confirmed based on your pass records, please abide by the mandate and core values of this commission,” said Mu’azu.
In response, Chukwuemeka praised President Muhammadu Buhari for his nomination as INEC REC.
However, he vowed to play his role wisely and promote Nigerian democracy. (YAYA)
