The panel was given two weeks to submit its report.

The panel is to be chaired by former vice-chancellor of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State, Tukur Sa’ad.

Mr. Sa’ad, a professor, was in office between 2002 and 2007 and was also a resident electoral commissioner in Borno State.
