Former INEC Chairman Jega Reacts Over Former President Jonathan Accusations

Ex-INEC Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega, has answered ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, over remarks he made concerning the 2015 general decisions. 

Jonathan in a book - 'Against the Run Of Play' - by Olusegun Adeniyi, communicated disillusionment with how Jega directed the race. Jega has responded.
Speaking though his Special Assistant, Prof. Mohammed Kuna, Jega disagreed with Jonathan’s belief that the wide margin between the presidential election and National Assembly results in Kano State was a reflection of a flawed election.

Jonathan said it was strange that the state recorded 1.8 million votes in the presidential poll and 800,000 in the National Assembly election on the same day.

But Prof Kuna dismissed Jonathan’s claims and insisted that the introduction of the card reader made it difficult to manipulate elections and inflate results.

Jega said, “There is nothing particularly special about the Kano result; it is a general trend as many voters were more interested in the presidential election than in other elections. That was what happened across the country and you can go and do the tabulation.

“With the card reader, it is no longer possible to return results that are higher than the accredited voters. If you analyse the results nationally, you will discover the same trend.”
