For their alleged failure to bring the desired growth and development in Nigeria within the past 20 years, a university don and former Chairman of the Independent Electoral Commission of Nigeria ( INEC), Professor Attahiru Muhammad Jega has urged Nigerians not to vote for the ruling All Progressives Congress ( APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party( PDP) Anymore
He alleged that the two major political parties were like Siamese twin and it was high time Nigerians look for a credible alternative to rule them.
” He said Nigerians should dump the two parties because of their bad antecedents over the past 20 years. Looking at their inability to change the economic fortunes of Nigeria for 20 years now, it is now apparently clear that they will not do anything even if Nigerians vote for any of the two parties again,”.
Jega explained that ” the bad things these parties committed in those past years, Nigerians should never give their trust to the parties again. It is now very clear that these parties would never change, even if they are given another chance.”
“The APC and PDP have formed governments, we were all witnesses. They did not come with a good intention to make amends. If you look at the fight against corruption, all these corrupt people that were supposed to be prosecuted sneaked into the APC.”
