APC has not failed Nigerians, PGF replies Jega

But Lukman said Jega had no evidence to support his submission

The Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), has faulted claim by Prof. Attahiru Jega, former INEC chairman, that the two major parties in the country have failed Nigerians.

Dr Salihu Lukman, Director-General, PGF, said this in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

Jega had in a BBC Hausa Service interview on Aug. 2, claimed that the two parties- the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had failed Nigerians and should not be trusted again.

But Lukman said Jega had no evidence to support his submission.

“He had submitted that the two big parties had failed to engender good governance and development in the country; consequently, he called on Nigerians not to give their trust to the parties again.

“Coming from Jega, the claim that both the PDP and APC are the same and had failed Nigerians should not be taken lightly,’’ he said.

Lukman said this was especially because Jega wasn’t just INEC`s former chairman, but a respected political scientist internationally, a theoretician and practitioner whose commitment to Nigeria’s development could not be faulted.

He said that Jega grew through the ranks of radical activism to become the leader, both intellectually and in the practical field of politics.
