Chairman of INEC’s Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, revealed Nahuche resigned due to personal reasons, and his resignation had been accepted by President Buhari.

“INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Estate, Works and Transport Committee, representing North-West, Abubakar Nahuche, resigned his appointment on personal reasons and the President has accepted his resignation and thanked him for his services to the nation,” he said.
