According to Daily Post, Zakari’s appointment means she will be responsible for announcing the results of the presidential election.


The former INEC Director of Operations, who hails from Daura, Katsina State, President Muhammadu Buhari’s hometown was last year moved to Health and Welfare arm of the Commission, following public outcry.

Speaking during the inauguration, INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu said the committee will be responsible for the collation of results.
