Chairman of the Committee, Opeyemi Bamidele said there was no petition against any nominee, adding, he allowed all nominees to speak in order to showcase the quality of persons President Buhari has nominated.
He also said the NHRC Bill is being amended to strengthen the Commission. The public hearing on that amendment has been held already.
However, Senator Ajibola Bashiru, Senate spokesperson, bitterly complained that a situation where some states have two nominees on the board of NHRC, and his own state (Osun) has none was not fair.
