2023: Why Nigerians Should Reject APC, PDP — Jega

A former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Attahiru Jega, has asked Nigerians to reject the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the leading opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general polls.

Jega, in an interview with BBC Hausa Service monitored by our reporters yesterday, said the two big parties had failed to engender good governance and development in the country.

He argued that since the return of democracy in 1999, after many years of military rule, PDP and APC which have run the country failed to live up to expectations.

PDP governed Nigeria from 1999 to 2015, while APC took over from 2015 to date.

Jega said, “Failure to bring the desired growth and development in Nigeria within the past 20 years, Nigerians should never give their trust to the parties again. It is now very clear that these parties would never change, even if they are given another chance.

“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, they sneaked into the APC.

“We are hearing nothing, that is why I have since registered with the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), and I am now a PRP member looking for ways to help Nigeria.”
