Former INEC boss, Jega advises Nigerians on how to deal with nonperforming leaders



Jega presents 8th National Assembly performance report

The immediate past chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Attahiru Jega on Tuesday advised Nigerians not to hesitate to vote out leaders who fail to meet up with expectations in 2023.

Jega gave the counsel during a lecture organized by the Hudaibiyya Centre at the Aminu Kano College of Legal and Islamic Studies in Kano, to mark Nigeria’s 59th independence on Tuesday.

The former INEC boss said every Nigerian deserves a good government which the leaders are expected to provide.

He also urged the Buhari government to ensure that recovered looted funds are used to develop national social security to alleviate hardship in Nigeria.

Jega stated that it was unfortunate that non-responsiveness, leaders’ nonchalant attitude to the masses woes thrive in Nigeria, ‘‘whereas these are what other nations have been fighting to erase from their system. If a leader fails, it is up to the public to ensure that they vote them out”.

He, however, called on the Buhari led government to consider also an urgent measure to implement as a lasting solution to proffer solutions to the insecurity and instability challenges in various sectors of the country.
