President Muhammadu Buhari has nominated Lauretta Onochie as the substantive chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
The president forwarded Onochie’s name to the Senate for confirmation on Wednesday.
Senate President Ahmed Lawan read Onochie’s name and that of 14 other nominated members of the board at plenary on Wednesday.
Onochie, who is currently the Special Adviser to the president on Social Media, had earlier been nominated by President Buhari as a National Commissioner for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Her nomination was, however, rejected by the red chamber.
