Prof Attahiru Jega, former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has described the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari as “very disappointing.”
Speaking to Daily Trust, Jega said the current administration has performed below the expectations of “so many Nigerians”.
Jega, who was INEC chairman from 2010 to 2015, was appointed by former President Goodluck Jonathan.
There were reports then that Jega connived with the Northern political bloc to stop Jonathan’s second term bid through the introduction of the card reader which made it virtually impossible for the election to be rigged by the central government.
The former vice-chancellor of Bayero University Kano said although 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.”
