Jega dispels doubts about his claim of electoral fraud in 2023 polls

Professor Attahiru Jega, a former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has responded to accusations that he said the 2023 elections were rigged.

The statement, according to Jega, reportedly came during a Senate retreat in Ikot Ipene, Akwa Ibom State, which lasted for two days.

Quoted by the Washington Post, Jega said, “We have seen, in 2023 elections, the damaging effect of how people in the corridors of power get their client/partisan nominees appointed, without being thoroughly screened, and then they are influenced to compromise the integrity of elections.”

Jega responded by claiming the article misrepresented his stance.

His Senior Research Assistant, Princess Hamman-Obels, released a brief statement in which she addressed the rumors about the 2023 elections’ integrity, which had been reported falsely in several online newspapers.

The widely circulated report misrepresents the perspective of the presenter and is therefore false.

Professor Jega strongly refutes the claim that he said anything like that about the 2023 elections.
