Others are Prof. Mohammed Sani (Katsina), Prof. Kunle Ajayi (Ekiti), and Seidu Ahmed (Jigawa).
The letter was read by the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, on the floor of the Senate on Tuesday.
Onochie is the Special Assistant to the President on Social Media.
Prof. Muhaamad Sani – Katsina State; Lauretta Onochie – Delta State; Kunle Cornelius Ajayi – Ekiti State, and Seidu Ahmad – Jigawa State.
Prof. Ajayi is believed to be the candidate of the governor of Ekiti state who has all the while been embroiled in political battle with loyalists of his godfather, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
