- The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the former chairman of the INEC, Attahiru Jega, to face his academic works instead of commenting on politics
- Jega had asked Nigerians to reject both the PDP and the APC in the next general elections and vote for a new reliable party
- The PDP, however, said it was unfair and wrong for the ex-INEC chairman to compare its performance with the APC
FCT, Abuja - For asking Nigerians to reject the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming general elections, the opposition party has hit hard at the former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Legit.ng gathered that Ologbondiyan said while PDP during its 16 years tenure paid off the country’s debt and revamped the economy with massive jobs created for citizens, the APC has wrecked the economy.
