Former Lagos State Governor and leading opposition figure in the country, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has called on INEC chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega to resign if he cannot deliver free and fair elections in 2015.

Speaking with journalists after All Progressives Congress new member registration sensitization exercise, Tinubu responded to comments made by Jega which stated that he could not guarantee perfect elections in 2015.

“Jega is already admitting failure and laying foundation for failure.

“If he can’t do the job, let him quit. What do we pay him for? A perfect election makes a perfect society. We must strive to give the people what they want.

“It has to be a perfect election in 2015, it has to be 99.9 per cent perfect. If he wants to lecture again about perfect and imperfection of electoral process, let him go back to the university”, Tinubu said.

The APC chief condemned the overseas trips being embarked upon by the INEC boss.

“Jega is presently moving from one country to the other. Is he saying that he has not learnt enough from this country to give us a perfect election?

“He is in America now, gallivanting around the countries. Is it the estacodes of his speeches that is enough for us? If he has not learnt from these countries in the last few years, then we can excuse him,” he said.
