The Presidency Finally Speak On the Rumoured Sack Of INEC Chairman "Professor Attahiru Jega"

The Presidency has reacted to the viral rumour that the Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Professor Attahiru Jega, had been sacked by the Federal Government.

A presidency official told Vanguard on Tuesday that “the rumoured sack of Jega is not from the Presidency, but part of the propaganda by the opposition to soil the good name of the President, to discredit the government and cause trouble.”

The official said there were no plans in place or in motion to remove the INEC chairman from office, stressing that the current administration is a law-abiding government that “follows the Constitution in the discharge of its duties, including the Chairman of INEC or any member for that matter.”

“The laws are clear about the question of leaving or not leaving and government has nothing to do with that. The man has a job to do and please allow him to do the job without dragging government into it.”

“This is the government that has been keeping to the rule of law and is not going to shy away from clinging to it. Please, they should allow Professor Jega should be allowed to  to do his work and stop heating up the polity.”
