Former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Attahiru Jega has said that Nigerians should not vote for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in subsequent elections again.
According to the University Don, two major parties have failed to change the economic situation of the country despite their number of years at the helm of affairs of the country.
He added that the two major political parties have not brought the growth needed by Nigerians
He alleged that corrupt politicians who were supposed to be prosecuted, always found their ways to the ruling party to avoid prosecution.
He said, ”Nigerians should dump the two parties because of their bad antecedents over the last 20 years. Looking at their inability to change the economic fortunes of Nigeria for 20 years now, it is now apparently clear that they would not do anything even if Nigerians vote for any of the two parties again.
“The APC and PDP have formed governments, we were all witnesses. They did not come with a good intention to make amends. If you look at the fight against corruption, all these corrupt people that were supposed to be prosecuted sneaked into the APC.”
Jega was the INEC chairman who organised the election that brought President Muhammadu Buhari to power in 2015
