University Professors compromised 2019 polls- Attahiru Jega

By Michael Paul

Former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Attahiru Muhammadu Jega on Tuesday accused university lecturers of allegedly conniving with politicians to undermine the integrity and outcome of the just concluded general elections.

Jega, regretted that the dons, through their actions betrayed the confidence the electoral body reposed in them.

Jega, who spoke as chairman of the 15th yearly conference of the Fulbright Alumni Association of Nigeria at BUK, cited how prominent politicians in Kano “penetrated the academia to commit irregularities.”

He said: “ Look at what happened during the last elections, and the story of irregularities being spread even in the four walls of BUK. The politicians, through crooked means, got alliances with lecturers in the university to compromise the system and they perpetrated all sort of irregularities, which pave way for a faulty process for the continued entrenchment of bad people in governance.”
