Electoral Crisis: INEC, Security Agencies To Blame — Goodluck Jonathan

Electoral Crisis: INEC, Security Agencies To Blame — Goodl

Nigeria's former President Goodluck Jonathan has blamed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies in the country for its electoral woes.

Jonathan accused the aforementioned parties while responding to a question on tackling Nigeria's perennial crisis on Arise TV.

According to Jonathan, the electoral process in the country is still "wobbling".

“The problem we have is the electoral management body, INEC and the security.

“I used to give an example: If two soccer teams are playing and the referee decides to look the other way, they will injure themselves.

“Election is like a soccer game. Everybody wants to win. And you must not allow it.

“The electoral management body shares more than 60 per cent of the blame. Because if they do their work well, the politicians will have no choice but to follow the rules.

“Electronic, we have (a) problem. Where is the problem coming from?

“So it is the electoral management body in this case. INEC has to sit up so that they will not throw this country into conflagration one day”, he stated.

Meanwhile, Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima are being sworn in as the President and Vice President at Eagle Square, Abuja.

The moment the duo arrived at the arena was captured and shared online.
