Jonathan?s Plan To Send Jega On Terminal Leave Scuttled

Efforts by the presidency to force the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chairman, Prof Attahiru Jega, to proceed on terminal leave by March 1 and thus prevent him from conducting the forthcoming general elections may have hit the rocks.

A source in INEC told LEADERSHIP yesterday that the former university don and lecturers? union boss would be in saddle to conduct the elections on the new dates of March 28 and April 11, this year.

Jega, who the presidency deems too independent-minded, was under intense pressure to throw in the towel prior to the Council of State meeting held at the presidential villa, Abuja, last week, in order to pave the way for a more pliable person to conduct the polls. Jega?s tenure ends in June.
