‘I have done my best as INEC boss’: Jega says he’ll quit in June

by Anike Jacobs

Man of the moment, Prof. Attahiru Jega, has expressed his reluctance to return as the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

In an interview with BBC Hausa, Prof. Jega who came into office in 2010 after the tenure of predecessor, Prof Maurice Iwu, expired, stressed that when his tenure as Chairman of the electoral body ends in June, he will gladly quit.

“I am grateful to God. I was asked to come and contribute my own quota to the national development and I have done my bit to the best of my ability. Whatever assignment one will do for five years, just like this difficult one to me, if one is able to successfully accomplish the task, someone else should be given the opportunity. Because for me I am not interested and if I am requested to serve again, I will not do it, by God’s grace,” he said.
