Former INEC Chairman, Attahiru Jega, Faces Immediate Arrest And Detention Ahead Of The 2019 General Elections, Lands In Big Trouble


EXPLOSIVE!!! Former INEC Chairman, Attahiru Jega, Faces Immediate Arrest And Detention Ahead Of The 2019 General Elections, Lands In Big Trouble

The Independent Newspaper, is reporting that Pan Yoruba Socio-Cultural group, Afenifere, has blamed the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and its immediate past Chairman, Attahiru Jega, for the numerous cases of underaged voters prevalent in the Northern part of the country.

The National Publicity Secretary of the group, Yinka Odumakin, disclosed that it is surprising to see that children are allowed to vote in some sections of the country, when the law of the country stipulates that anyone below the age of 18 is not eligible to vote.
While also holding Jega responsible for the anomaly, Afenifere said in the build-up to the 2015 general elections, INEC while under Jega’s leadership distributed the PVCs personally to individuals in the Southern part of the country, as against allegedly handing them over to Emirs in the North, who in turn distributed them to everyone in their locality, including underaged children.
The group said urgent action must be taken to correct the anomaly, or this could hamper the conduct of free and fair polls in 2019.
In view of this, a cross-section of Nigerians and Political Activists have called for the immediate arrest and detention of those who distributed PVCs to underaged children, including the Leader of INEC at the time, Attahiru Jega.
They maintained that all accomplices including Jega, must be brought to book and called to question on how thousands of PVCs are in the hands of underaged children in Northern Nigeria.
