Former Independent National Electoral Commission Chairman (INEC), Attahiru Jega has said that Nigeria’s politicians act like militants.
Jega also condemned the country’s politicians for treating politics like a do-or-die affair.
He made the comments on Saturday, October 8, during the 50th birthday celebration of All Progressives Congress (APC) Legal Adviser, Dr Muiz Banire.
“INEC, as an election management body, faced perhaps its greatest challenge containing the predisposition and reckless mindset of Nigerian politicians. I quite often say that Nigeria has a special breed of politicians – ‘militicians’,” Jega said according to Punch.
