jega-BahariA chieftain of the newly formed All Progressive Congress (APC) and former military Head of State, retired General Muhammod Buhari has called for a total overhaul of the Independent National Electoral Commission,INEC, if the Nation must have credible elections. He said the chairman and other top echelons of INEC are corrupt and would make mess of the forthcoming 2015 elections. Speaking in London at the 4th British-African Diaspora, a conference organised by BEN TV held at the British House of Parliament on the theme  “Stable Democracy and Nigeria’s Economy,”, Buhari said the chairman of INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega must be sacked if the Nation desired credible elections.

He said, “All the present indications are that INEC as it is presently constituted would be unable to deliver any meaningful elections in 2015,”

Speaking further, he said the organisation is rooted in corruption.  “INEC’s top echelon is immersed deep in corruption and only wholesale changes at the top could begin to cure its malaise. What is required is a group of independent minded people, patriotic, incorruptible but with the capacity to handle such a strenuous assignment of conducting elections in Nigeria. It is not difficult to find such people but whether the Government and the National Assembly have the inclination to do so I am not so sure.” He added.
