Former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Attahiru Jega, has faulted Nigeria’s electoral system describing it
Jega further alleged that politicians used university lecturers
The former INEC chairman spoke at the annual conference of the Fulbright Alumni Association of Nigeria at Bayero University Kano (BUK) and
“I think the major crisis in Nigeria’s democracy is that our electoral integrity has been under assault, compromised and undermined by those who have control over the process,” he said.
“Look at what happened during the last elections, and the story of irregularities being spread even in the four walls of BUK.
“The politicians, through crooked means, got alliances with lecturers
“Maybe, I am preaching to the converted or I am talking nonsense but frankly speaking, I am beginning to think that we are not taking the obligations of scholarship and intellectual engagement with the seriousness it deserves
