A former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega, has described the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari as “very disappointing.”

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Daily Trust on Sunday, Mr Jega said the current administration has performed below the expectations of “so many Nigerians”.

According to him, although President Buhari enjoys goodwill from many Nigerians, citizens are worried “about the direction the country is taking.”

“He (Buhari) has disappointed so many people. He still has time to correct things if he has the capacity to do that. Frankly, his government has been very disappointing.

“Governance has been very poor at the federal level and many of the states that is why we are seeing challenges everywhere; whether it is insurgency, banditry, armed robbery or other things.”

DAILY NIGERIAN reports that the former INEC chairman who was also a former university administrator had since joined partisan politics.

In 2019, Mr Jega joined the Peoples Redemption Party, PRP, in his bid to contest for the 2023 presidency.

Mr Jega, who is now a card-carrying member of the PRP and chairman of the SWOT analysis committee of the party, was listed among the prominent Northerners to reposition the party against the All Progressives Congress, APC, and People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2023 polls.
