Attahiru Jega is still the INEC chairman – Presidency


For the past couple of weeks, there have been rumours circulating that federal government was planning to sack Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Attahiru Jega.

However, Vanguard reported that the presidency has debunked the rumours of sacking the INEC chairman.

A source from the office of the National Security Adviser, NSA, reportedly told newsmen that “the rumoured sack of Jega is not from the Presidency, but part of the propaganda by the opposition to soil the good name of the President, to discredit the government and cause trouble.”
Jega’s chief press secretary, Kayode Idowu, also stated that Jega would not be forced into taking a terminal leave, as has been rumoured.
According to Punch, Idowu said “Jega is busy preparing for the elections and you are asking about terminal leave. Does anyone planning to conduct elections go on terminal leave? There is nothing like that.”
**Which one is which during the election time like this? Only God knows what we will hear next**
