NEF: Group Warns FG As Plot To Sack Jega Intensifies

share on:

The Northern Elders Forum (NEF) has threatened the Federal Government of Nigeria over plot to remove the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Prof. Attahiru Jega, before the commencing of the country’s 2015 general elections.

In a briefing on Friday by its spokesman, Ango Abdullahi threatened that such move will be a “recipe for disaster.”

According to Naij, Mr. Abdullahi further revealed that any attempt at this last minute by the Federal Government or any of its agencies to remove Jega is a clear message that the government is determined to rig the forthcoming elections.

The group disclosed that the presidency wants Jega removed because they see him as an impediment as he thinks that the electoral umpire must follow the rules for free, fair and credible elections.
