The former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Attahiru Jega, has expressed readiness to make corrections for his part in the emergence of the present government in 2015 presidential election.
Jega who along some prominent leaders in the country, recently formed a new political group known as Rescue Nigeria Project (RNP), said that Nigeria cannot continue to allow bad people to govern or misgovern them anymore.

While speaking in Abuja, he said the country needs serious political cleansing which would also require every Nigerian to not repeat past mistakes.

“I believe that all Nigerians can no longer be nuetral as everybody needs to make impact to the cleansing of politics in Nigeria. There should be no fence-sitters; our future is at stake. We cannot allow bad people to continue to govern us or misgovern us and continue to wreck our country and its future,” he said.

He said every Nigerian deserves a better life and it is the government’s responsibility to ensure that. He advised that if it becomes clear that leaders in the country are unable to improve the lives of the people, they have no reason to be in power.

He said it was unfortunate that leaders’ nonchalant attitude to the masses woes thrive in Nigeria, ‘‘whereas these are what other nations have been fighting to erase from their system. If a leader fails, it is up to the public to ensure that they vote them out.”
