Don’t Expect Perfect Elections in 2015 ––INEC Chairman Jega

The Independent National Electoral Commission said perfect elections are not possible in 2015. It, however, assured that certain measures were being put in place to achieve success.

The Chairman of the commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega, stated this when the new United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. James Entwistle, visited him in Abuja on Monday.
In the words of Jega: “We are not promising a perfect election in 2015 but we are confident that we will do our best.”
He added that, “We are still on the continuous voter register and have held a series of meetings with security agencies, civil society organisations and development partners ahead of 2015.”

On the messed up Anambra election, Jega said, “Anambra State election is an election we fully prepared for. We worked more than we had ever done in any state. Regrettably, however, what we saw was evidence of the reversal in Delta and Anambra states. We are disappointed with the reversals.

“But we are not leaving any stone unturned at unravelling what actually transpired. We will investigate Anambra State election thoroughly and meticulously. We will do a thorough enquiry. We cannot afford to lose hope. We will do better in the future.”
