No plan to sack Jega – Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday said although he has the powers to fire the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Attahiru Jega, he is not contemplating doing so.

He stated this during the Presidential Media Chat in response to reports that the Presidency was plotting to sack the INEC Chairman based on the calls by some supporters of Mr. Jonathan who are accusing Mr. Jega of bias.

The president did not however mention the provision of the constitution that empowers him to sack Mr. Jega.

Mr. Jega had on Saturday announced a reschedule of the presidential and national assembly elections from February 14 to March 28 and the governorship and state assembly elections from February 28 to April 11.

He hinged the postponement on the security challenges in the north east zone, saying the military and the security agencies had informed the commission that they would not be available to provide security in that zone.

It is believed in some quarters that the Commission was forced to take the step because Mr. Jonathan’s party, the Peoples Democratic Party, as well as some of the president’s sympathisers no longer had confidence in Mr. Jega’s leadership.

However, responding to a question from a four-member panel of interviewers on whether he was planning to remove Mr. Jega, the president, who is also the PDP presidential candidate in the now rescheduled election, said most of the information being spread about the issue did not emanate from him.

Wishing that Mr. Jega was there to answer the question, Mr. Jonathan however explained that in politics, the campaign leadership and supporters of particular candidates could post any information online without the knowledge of such politician.

He stated that some people had been using the opportunity presented by the postponement of the polls to misinform the public.

“One thing about politics and leadership generally, when you are leader, let us say when you are governor you have a number of people who support you but you don’t even know what they do or what they say,” he said.

“Maybe somebody has been making statements about something the assumption is that because that person supports you or they are your fans and some of them are fans of other candidates, it is assumed that you said so.”

The president said he appointed all the INEC national commissioners and the Resident Electoral Commissioners on the strength of the constitution and that if he felt Mr. Jega was not good enough for obvious reason, he could ask him to go.

“I have not told anybody that I am going to remove Jega. I have not said so. You see some of these things are creation by people for one interest or the other,” he said.

Mr. Jonathan said some people are cashing in on the postponement of the elections to misinform Nigerians.

He said he was saddened by the misinformation being dished out to young Nigerians.

    A man who would distribute 80% PVC’s in war torn NE and about 46% South should not remain in offi e for one day.

    He indicted himself with that report as being complicit. He devised this rigging strategy after the South hounded him with his then intent to give the North 21,600 plus polli.g booths.

    He already has the election result prepared by percentage and he is still working along that line.

    We know that the USA is better disposed to a man who would allow gay life, so they are also doing everything possible to help Jega. But we will know when the time comes who trully own Nigeria

    Mr. President, how I wish you hadn’t lied severally before. How I wish you hadn’t betrayed my trust. How I wish you were far more smarter than this. But thank God, I’m realizing not too lately; I’m realizing before the Presidential election. It’s true that I have only one vote but thank God, I’m not alone in this. The world cannot be wrong!

      Signature bonuses which are paid when an investor successfully bids, wins and signs agreement with the petroleum ministry, running into tens of millions and sometimes hundreds of millions of naira ,is often waived off. There is actually no waiver; rather a diversion of what would have been paid to government t coffers is paid into private purse as appreciation gifts. That is why those in the Petroleum Ministry dread retirement as though it signifies going to hell fire. No matter how little your influence, something substantial must enter your hands especially in hard currency. The nation loses billions of dollars in diverted revenue whenever any round of auction occurs.

      OML 110 with high yield OBE oil fields was given Cavendish Petroleum owned by Alhaji Mai Daribe, the Borno Patriarch in 1996 by Sanni Abacha. OBE oil field has estimated over 500 million barrels of oil. In layman’s language and using average benchmark of $100 dollars per barrel, translates to $50 billion dollars worth of oil reserve. When you remove the taxes, royalties and sundry duties worth about 60% of the reserve payable over time you get about $20billion dollars worth of oil in the hands of a family.

      OPL 246 was awarded to SAPETRO, a company owned by General Theophilus Danjuma, by Sanni Abacha in 1998. Akpo condensate exports about 300,000 barrels of crude daily.

      OML 112 and OML 117 were awarded to AMNI International Petroleum Development Company owned by Colonel Sanni Bello in 1999. Sanni Bello is an inlaw to Abdulsalami Abubakar, former Head of State of Nigeria.

      OML 115, OLDWOK Field and EBOK field was awarded to Alhaji Mohammed Indimi from Niger State. Indimi is an inlaw to former Military President Ibrahim Babangida.

      OML 215 is operated by Nor East Petroleum Limited owned by Alhaji Saleh Mohammed Gambo.

      OML 108 is operated by Express Petroleum Company Limited is owned by Alhaji Aminu Dantata.

      OML II3 allocated to Yinka Folawiyo Pet Ltd is owned by Alhaji W.I. folawiyo

      The process of sharing Nigeria’s oil block national cake is as fraudulent now as when Ibrahim Babangida started the process of discretionary allocation of oil blocks to indigenous firms. Discretionary allocation of oil blocks entails that a president can

      reward a mistress who performs wonderfully with an oil block with capacity for cumulative yield of over $20 billion dollars without recourse to any process outside of manhood attachments. Babangida, Abacha, Abdulsalami and Obasanjo awarded discretionary oil blocks to friends, associates, family members, party chieftains, security chiefs and all categories of bootlickers, spokespersons and cult members without any laid down procedures.

      The recipients of such oil blocks will get funds from ever willing offshore financiers and partners to graciously settle the benefactors, the awarders, facilitators and the Commander-in-Chief through fronts. These settlements mostly paid into foreign accounts runs into hundreds of millions of dollars according to the potential yield of the block. Sometimes, the awarder (sharer of national cake and direct intermediaries) demand additional stakes in the bidding company. The awarder sends fronts as part of the directorship and management of the bidding firms without leaving a link to them. That is how the oil block national cake is distributed to a few Nigerians.

    Remember Stealing is not Corruption? Suspension is not Sacking. He is still planning to suspend him like he did to Sanusi. That is why the PDP continues to attack Jega but their evil plans will unravel. PDP supporters do not want to vote because GEJ has disappointed them. Jega is not responsible if PDP supporters do not go to collect their PVCs. They don’t want to vote. All Jega can do for them is make sure the cards are ready. If PDP cannot mobilise their voters, is that Jega’s problem?

      So you know Nigerian constitution is secular and you did not oppose sharia law in the north,even when there are indienous non moslems who belong to the north .Who are being systematically being killed,kidnapped,rapped through militant wing of islamization-boko haram.Now they have even invited other jihadists to join for the futile dream of islamizing Nigeria.See how the whole north is painted with blood in the name of religion.
      From the name you bear on this forum is a clear indication you are a religious fanatic,.The manner of brain–washing and hate you guys have undergone will take decades to free your minds.
      What is your business if the president decides to kneel in the church.Is it your leg he is kneeling with?
      Why do you wash your private parts,anus ,mouth,eyes,ear,legs and hands when you want to pray.Why do hit your head on the ground?That is your mode of worship.So you do not have any justification to question how christains worship their God.

AGAIN THE EUROPEANS HAS ABANDONED CHRISTIANITY FOR FREE-MINDED-MASONS AND THROW AWAY THE BIBLE FOR SCIENTIFIC MANUALS AND TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH AND PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS TO DEVELOP THE HUMANITY. BUT INSTEAD YOU THE BLACK AFRICANS WERE GIVEN THE GOSPEL AND CHRISTIAN FAITH FOR EXPLOITATION AND PERPETUAL BLINDNESS.
        THE NIGERIAN CONSTITUTION WAS DRAFTED PARTLY FROM BIBLICAL COMMANDMENTS AND INJUNCTIONS FOUND ON THE COMMON ENGLISH LAWS THAT COLONIALIST ADOPT TO GUIDE THE COLONY OF NIGERIA. SHARIA LAW, CUSTOMARY OR TRADITIONAL LAWS WERE MAINTAINED BY THE BRITISH TO PROVIDE FAIR GROUNDS FOR THE SUBJECTS OF HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND AND WALES “MAY SHE FOREVER REIGN” SHARIA LAW IS EXCLUSIVELY FOR MUSLIMS SO ALSO THE CUSTOMARY LAW FOR TRADITIONALIST. AND THE MAJOR LAW WHICH IS CHRISTIAN ORIENTED SERVED AS THE OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT RULES AND REGULATIONS. MUSLIMS OR TRADITIONALIST NEVER ARGUED THAT CHRISTIAN LAWS WHICH REPRESENT THE COUNTRY TO BE FORESTALL OR ABANDINED BUT ACCEPTED THE BITTER COLONIAL FORCEFUL DRIVE.

    APC Hate Non Indigenes Especial Igbo. READ THIS.
    Anti- Igbo Stance Of The APC Government In Lagos State.
    1. In the past 15year and counting, No APC Governor has ever attended any Igbo event in Lagos State despite our numerical strength.
    2. Governor Fashola abolished Eze Ndigbo title and did not do same to other ethnic group in Lagos Sate.
    3. We are against hawking because of its adverse effects but while KAI (kick Against Igbo) condons bread, meat and Agbo sellers-mainly our Yoruba brothers and sisters, Ndigbo and most time, Minors that hawk handkerchifes, phone accessories etc are daily battered, arrested and illegally imprisoned.
    4. LASTMA victimized, humiliates, brutalizes etc as soon as he perceives you to be ONYEIGBO. A case in view, is the recent murder of ONYEOnitsha (Driver) by LASTMA officers at Iponri.
    5. The housing estate project of governor Fashola up till date, has no Igbo person as beneficiary.
    6. Throughout fifteen years and counting of APC government in Lagos State, no Igbo child has been given a scholarship or bursary in any education institution.
    7. Statistics show that Igbos pay more for land charge, shop permits etc.
    8. Our market are burnt at night and rebuilt by the LORDS of Lagos State and resold exorbitantly to Ndigbo e.g. Tejuosho market and Balogun market.
    9. Arbitrary and extortionist closure of our markets and incessant threat of closure all geared toward extortion.
    10. Igbo importers pay through their nose to miscreant planted by agent of Lagos State before they could offload their duly cleared containers.
    11. APC threatens to revoke the BBA (Balogun Business Association) Agreement if they win the next election.
    12. The GESTAPONIC DEPORTATION of Ndigbo by governor Fashola government show that no Igbo person is safe if APC return to power.
    SAY NO TO APC GOVERNMENT so that our importers, traders can operate freely.
    SAY No TO APC GOVERNMENT so that YOU and I will not be deported and abandoned at under the bridge at Upper Iweka in Onitsha.
    13. Orji Uzor Kalu former governor of Abia State was intimidated by Fashola when he perceived his comment on issue of deportation of Igbo to their State, as offensive, he Fashola locked Uzor’s house at Ikoyi on the pretence that he was owing the state government.
    Ndigbo Shine your Eyes and say no to APC.
    TAKE THEIR MONEY BUT VOTE THEM OUT!!!
    Another four years of APC in Lagos State is another four BARREN YEARS for NDIGBO in Lagos State.

    (According to CAA, South-East has (3,287, 530) , South West (7,411,205), South-South (3,844,370) , North-East (2,429,763), North West (4,835,556), North Central (3,907,849) and FCT(421,559).

    On the distribution of PVCs, CAA said it has observed “a criminal gross disparity of voter spread designed to tilt the election to a pre-determined outcome.

    The group insists that all the 68.8 million registered voters must be given unfettered access to freely collect their PVCs and cast their vote as provided for in the constitution, adding that it would be forced to take INEC to court if that condition was not met.

    “Let us call a spade, a spade. There are two main contenders for the Presidency in this election. The analyzed data above depicts a worrying trend. Voters in the zones that tend to support President Goodluck Jonathan are massively disenfranchised by the application of the so-called PVCs debacle, 40% to 50% of voters in the these regions who are lawfully and duly registered to vote will be denied their right to vote by INEC.
    “That is nearly half of the support base of the President, simply nullified by administrative (failure) prior to the election. By comparison, the zones that tend to support Buhari are handed a massive voter advantage, nearly 80% of his support base will be allowed to cast their votes by INEC.)

    • tyson

      (In an election, which many say will be won or lost by a slim margin, to now disenfranchise 26million voters through a questionable and unlawful rule by INEC is not acceptable by any measure.

      While speaking on the controversy raging over the coming election, Balarabe Musa said there is no way INEC can be able to distribute the outstanding PVCs within the remaining two weeks.

      “INEC cannot meet up with the issuance voters card to all registered voters, even the PVCs is not being realistic because of the past failures in the past. For example, INEC is talking about distributing permanent voters cards. Let us assume that sufficient PVCs have been produced the commission, how is the PVC is still being distributed.)

  • warry

    Prof Jega has either rigged the elections using PVC’s or is grossly incompetent. Take fir instance, Unit 3,phalga ward 7,Rivers State, all 500 names were removed from the voters Register and no PVC for anybody ,even though they have TVC. Some were able to re register in December and up till today, no single PVC has been given to any of them.

    This jega is not straight forward, he should just resign if he knows he cant handle the job. GEJ till 2019!

  • nwaeke

    I am dismayed over high level of incompetence and poor knowledge-ability on electioneering in democracy, being displayed by Prof. Attahiru Jega and his 22 Resident Electoral Commissioners, that supported holding elections while millions of voters are being disenfranchised.

  • Enumah

    The policy of using permanent voters card (PVC) or Temporary Voters Card (PVC), being an INEC policy is already running foul of the Constitution that gives right of voting to all registered voters and we all know that when a policy falls short of the Constitution, that policy must give way.

  • Ukpono

    I hold the view that If a citizen is a registered voter, goes to his or her polling booth and can identify himself or herself on the voters register with a PVC or a TVC or by highly secured means such as the International E-Passport and the National ID card, that voter should be allowed to perform his or her right to vote a candidate of his or her choice.

  • Etega

    Just sack dis man if em no follow abeg. I no wan hear say shooting bird mama fly away.

  • uko bassey

    If Jega has compromised his position then he should be removed, We need a straight forward personality in that position! we need our pvc’s so we can vote for GEJ to stay till 2019 and continue his good works..

  • Ndubuisi Chinedu

    The rumour is the handiwork of APC. A party that lies about everything. APC….SHAME.

    Jega is trying his best to leave a lasting legacy. No need to toss him up and down. GEJ is good enough for Nigeria. let’s move our nation forward.

  • uzo

    apc should stop spreading lies

  • kemi

    jega should do what is right by giving out pvc for collection

  • I Came across an article saying Jega plans to rig th election in favour of GMB. well if that be the case, they should toss his behind over board.

  • I doubt if this is true, i think the APC folks keeps spinning webs of lies to distract the public from the main thing they should focus on. which is putting the right leader on seat,Jonathan is the right leader.

  • ubong ekanem

    before election everybody should get pvc

  • chinwe davis

    JEGA your job is to ensure that PVC’s go round and reaches the entire populace before the election, take a bow if you cant do that,these old men sef,reasoning in slow mo

  • kingsley obi

    if the plan of jega and some others is to disenfranchise eligible voters,they sure have failed as the public is now aware of the evil plan and i am sure President Jonathan will not hesitate to sack him if he tries to play a fast one

  • faith adams

    Relieving sanusi of his job was as easy as one taking off his hat, so jega should tread carefully….GEJ is a no nonsense man

  • felicia jones

  • sofia williams

    GEJ has made us see the corrupt practices of jega and his co pilots

  • ProHOPE

    I wonder where this rumour is coming from!….what will APC not do to carry our their myopic noise for change?…jega relax nobody go sack you but ensure you do your job well and avoid being used by anyone no matter who they are…that is how to ensure a free and fair election…..i.e no favourism…

    Goodluck Jonathan Initiated the Sovereign Wealth Fund (SWF). A seed capital of $1 billion was provided to kick start the fund as well as establish three sub funds- the Nigeria Infrastructure Fund; the Future Generations Fund and the Stabilization Fund which will be the pillars of the SWF. Goodluck is working!
