Former INEC Boss Jega Advises Nigerians On The Kind Of Leader To Elect

A former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof Attahiru Jega, has declared that Nigeria was in dire need of competent and assertive leaders.
The former INEC boss said the country does not necessarily need a strong leader, adding that an incompetent leader who is strong will end up destroying institutions.

He made these points at the 58th Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association in Abuja on Monday.

He recalled that a former president once said elections must be do-or-die, an incident he described as most unfortunate 
and warned that politicians must stop treating elections as a do-or-die affair.
