Four political parties have called for INEC Chairman, Attahiru Jega, to proceed on terminal leave. The group has warned that they will not participate in the March 28 and April 11 elections should the use of card readers not be suspended beforehand.
The group, comprising of the MEGA Progressive People’s Party, People’s Party of Nigeria, Alliance for Democracy and Advanced Congress for Democrats, has stated the reason for their decision being due to unprofessional behaviour and bad judgement exhibited on the part of Jega. The call comes just hours after an allegation made by the All Progressives Congress (APC) against the Government regarding the use of “satellite organs” from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to seek a fresh shift in elections.
It has been alleged that fifteen political parties and five presidential aspirants may pull out of the upcoming polls. The names of these have yet to be disclosed.
