Jega Insists Nigeria Will Have Credible Elections

The  INEC Chairman, Attahiru Jega, lammented that a “lot of things” were designed to distract INEC from making the March 28 and April 11 general elections a success. He said so during a press conference held yesterday, Wednesday 11th of march, 2015.

Jega, at a meeting with the 37 Resident Electoral Commissioners in Abuja, however gave an assurance that Nigerians’ aspiration for   free, fair and credible elections, would be met.

His comment came a day after the Peoples Democratic Party governors said that the commission was ill-prepared for the polls.

Critics of INEC’s card readers, including the PDP governors and the national leaders of the ruling party had claimed that the device could result in the disenfranchisement of eligible voters on the days of the elections.

Jega, who spoke before the meeting went into closed-door session, said that the commission would examine every gap in its preparations for the elections in the next few weeks.

Facing the RECs, he said:

“This is a very challenging time for all of you as we put final finishing touches to our preparations for the   2015 general elections.

“This meeting is very important because it is an opportunity for us to   have a final review and updating of the extent of our preparations for the elections.

“It is important that we also remain focused in terms of delivering the best elections for our country. There are a lot of things to distract us but we need to remain focused and resilient.

“We need to do everything possible to make sure that the elections scheduled for March 28 and April 11   are indeed substantially much better than those we conducted in 2011 and the subsequent by-elections in some states.”
