Jega To Quit As INEC Chairman June 30?

SPECULATIONS are rife that the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Attahiru Jega, will quit office on June 30, 2015.

This is contrary to earlier reports that he would quit at the end of his five-year tenure on June 8.

Jega was appointed in June 2010 by former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Jega had, after the last general elections on March 28 and April 11, said he would neither seek for a fresh term in office nor take the offer of renewal if granted.

He is the only INEC chairman that conducted two general elections in the history of Nigeria electoral process.
