According to him, “The Chairman of INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu deserves to be commended for stepping aside and handing over to an acting chairman in anticipation of his confirmation by the Senate. Professor Yakubu has indeed by that singular act proved to be a man of honour who has total respect for the laws of the land. It is difficult to see a government appointee act in such honourable manner – stepping down on his own volition from an office he has been reappointed, to await legislative endorsement as required by law. We have seen cases where appointees whose appointment by law requires Senate confirmation will stubbornly remain in office even when such approval was yet to be granted by the Red Chamber. For instance, you will recall how the embattled immediate past Chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, obstinately remained in office for over four years despite several rejections of his appointment by the Senate.
