The 2023 general elections were not tampered with, according to Attahiru Jega, a former head of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
The revelation was reportedly made by the former INEC chief last week during a two-day retreat that the Senate hosted in Ikot Ipene, Akwa Ibom State.
Princess Hamman-Obels, his senior research assistant, released a statement on behalf of Mr. Jega claiming that the story was inaccurate and did not accurately represent his views.
“The attention of Prof. Attahiru Jega has been drawn to a misleading report published in a number of online newspapers quoting him to have commented that the 2023 elections were compromised.
“The report making the rounds is incorrect and not an accurate reflection of the presenter’s position. Professor Jega categorically denies making this particular comment about the 2023 polls,” the statement noted.
