Jega Replies Former President Jonathan

Former INEC Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega, has replied ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, over comments he made concerning the 2015 general elections.

Jonathan in a book - 'Against the Run Of Play' - by Olusegun Adeniyi, expressed disappointment with how Jega conducted the election. Jega has reacted.

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.”

  1. The saying that the introduction of the card reader made it difficult to manipulate elections and inflate results; is a pure lie bcos many polling stations had a malfunctioning card reader and we're allowed to vote unverified, that's includes my polling station

  10. That card reader was a waste of money and one of the most senseless project INEC ever involved in. I monitored many polling units, I can say for sure that it was not used in about 60 percent of polling units in Nigeria.
