2023: Ex INEC Chairman, Jega Rejects Rotational Presidency, See The Reason
Professor Attahiru Jega, former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has rejected the rotational presidency advocated by certain Nigerians, notably Southern politicians.
Jega stated on ARISE TV on Tuesday that the country requires a capable leader to rescue Nigeria from its current security and economic issues.
According to him, the solution to Nigeria’s dilemma cannot be solved simply by zoning the president to a specific region and claiming that all the country requires is a candidate with capacity and expertise.
“The way our country is now, we need the best person with competence, capacity, and experience to become the president in 2023 to take us out of the challenges we have presently.
“That person can come from the North, South, East or the West, but the important thing is that even if political parties decide that a candidate should come from a particular area, what we need to do is that Nigerians must interrogate the capacity of that person to lead this country appropriately”.
Professor Jega, who oversaw the 2015 general elections that gave birth to the current administration, asked Nigerians to look for the candidate’s personality rather than the region or political party from which he or she hails.
