A former Minister of Information, Jerry Gana, has said that the Independent National Electoral Commission has not been “fair” to Nigerians with their conduct of elections.
Gana said this in exclusive interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, insisting that INEC has not “respected” the introduction of technologies in the country’s electoral system.
The former minister, however, expressed optimism in the future electoral processes, hoping that they would be better than the previous ones.
He said, “Recently, INEC has not been fair to Nigerians in conducting national elections.
“Therefore, we have a long way to go in our democracy if we allow this ugly development to continue.
“It is true that we have introduced a lot of modern technology to improve our electoral system but these technologies are not being respected today by INEC.
“To me, it is a major disappointment that INEC was not fair enough to give us the leaders of our choice.
“After going through the current democratic process, it is my hope that the next one will be better.”
