Contrary to reports that the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega, will be forced to leave office March 1, his Chief Secretary, Mr Kayode Idowu has denied that and asked how a manwill go on terminal leave when he is busy preparing for the forthcoming elections. According to him, his boss is going nowhere and his appointment was not guided by civil service rules. Hear him;
“Jega is busy preparing for the elections and you are asking about terminal leave. Does anyone planning to conduct elections go on terminal leave? There is nothing like that.”
Idowu went ahead also saying in a Tv interview yesterday that, Jega’s appointment was not guided by civil service rules and would serve until the end of his tenure on June 30. The postponement of the elections would make INEC better prepared for the elections scheduled for March 28 and April 11, he said.
