The former Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Attahiru Jega, has described the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari as “very disappointing.”
Daily Trust quoted the for INEC chair as saying that the current administration has performed below the expectations of many Nigerians, adding, however, that the President still had time to correct things.
The former INEC boss, who was appointed by former President Goodluck Jonathan, was Chairman from 2010 to 2015.
According to him, many people who wish the President well are worried about the “direction the country is taking.”
“Unfortunately, he has disappointed so many people. He still has time to correct things if he has the capacity to do that. But frankly, his government has been very disappointing. Many people wish him well but are worried about the direction the country is taking,” he said.
Jega, a one-time Vice-Chancellor of the Bayero University, Kano (BUK), noted that the Buhari administration has been very inept in managing peaceful coexistence in the country, according to a report by Daily Trust.
“Governance has been very poor at the Federal level and several of the states; that is why we are seeing challenges everywhere; whether it is insurgency,” he added.
