Prof. Attahiru Jega, former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), says Nigeria’s political space needs cleansing and the responsibility rest on Nigerians.
Prof. Jega made the remark during the inauguration of a 35-man People’s Redemption Party (PRP) Policy Advisory Committee (PPAC) in Abuja on Friday.
The former INEC chairman who is also a member of the PRP Advisory Committee, added that Nigeria cannot continue to allow bad people to govern or misgovern them and must therefore act proactively.
“All hands must be on deck to sanitise Nigerians on the electoral process. I believe that all Nigerians can no longer sit on the fence as everybody needs to contribute to the cleansing of politics in Nigeria,” said Prof. Jega.
“There should be no fence-sitters; our future is at stake. We cannot allow bad people to continue to govern us or misgovern us and continue to wreck our country and its future.”
