Buhari Called For Jega's Sack & Accused INEC Of Corruption In March 2013 by Sunnybobo3(m): 6:02pm On Mar 06, 2015
Buhari calls for Jega’s sack, accuses INEC of deep corruption

Nigeria’s former head of state Muhammadu Buhari, has called for the sack of the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Attahiru Jega, and other top officials of the commission, saying the electoral body, as presently constituted, cannot be trusted to deliver on credible elections.

Speaking in London at the 4th British-African Diaspora conference held at the British House of Parliament on the theme “Stable Democracy and Nigeria’s Economy,”, Mr. Buhari said sacking Mr. Jega and his lieutenants is a good starting point for fixing Nigeria’s broken electoral system.

“All the present indications are that INEC as it is presently constituted would be unable to deliver any meaningful elections in 2015,” the former head of state said. “INEC’s top echelon is immersed deep in corruption and only wholesale changes at the top could begin to cure its malaise.”

He said for future elections to be credible and hitch-free, government needs to do a clean sweep of the personnel at INEC, replacing them with Nigerians of unquestionable integrity.

“What is required is a group of independent minded people, patriotic, incorruptible but with the capacity to handle such a strenuous assignment of conducting elections in Nigeria. It is not difficult to find such people but whether the Government and the National Assembly have the inclination to do so I am not so sure.” Mr. Buhari added.

He accused the Jega-led INEC of having developed “a very cozy relationship with Executive and Judicial arms of government that its impartiality is totally lost”.

Mr. Buhari recalled that in the run-up to the last elections the electoral body “requested (and received with indecent haste) in excess of 80 billion naira (about £340m.) a hefty sum by any standards, so that it could conduct the elections including organizing bio-metric voters data specifically for the 2011 elections”.

He said that but when opposition parties “challenged the patently dishonest figures it announced and subpoenaed the bio-metric data in court, INEC refused to divulge them on the laughable excuse of “National Security”.

Robust debate indeed. And who is going to move all the threads about the things the PDP presidential campaign spokesman said about the president just early last year and in 2013 to the fp so we can have a robust debate

Who is going to move those about what Ababi wrote about Jonathan and his wife a few years back to the fp so we can have a robust debate on them

Yeye dey oooze.

That will tell you the kind of "integrity" Buhari is carrying around. The same man Buhari was calling for his removal some time ago is now his right hand man just because he's scheming to help him rig the election in his favour.

You see their lives I said APC is up to no good. They called for his sack when he was doing his job properly. Now that they have compromised him , jega is now the best person for INEC.

Apc is a band of "directionaless" people
Buhari is a green snake and an illiterate
Tinubu is corruption personified
Lie mohammed is a the grand patron of liars
Amaechi is a glorified houseboy.
