Professor of Political Science, and the Director-General of the National Electoral Institute, Abubakar Momoh, is dead.

Momoh was with the Lagos State University, Ojo, before he was appointed the CEO of the Institute of the Independent National Electoral Commission.

He obtained his PhD in Political Theory and started his Lecturing career in 1988. He has served on various Boards and scientific committees including those of the Centre for Democracy and Development, CDD, and Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa, CODESRIA.
