Orubebe accuses Jega of partiality on live TV


The former minister of Niger Delta, Godday Orubebe today made the grievances of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) known as the collation of votes for the presidential election resumed today in Abuja. He accused the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commisssion (INEC), Prof Attahiru Jega of partiality.

According to Orubebe, the All Progressives Congress (APC) was in possession of an election result he believed had been given to the opposition party by the INEC chairman.

He noted that while Jega set up a committe to investigate the protest letter of APC on Rivers election, he rejected the letter of PDP on Kano, Jigawa, Katsina and Kadunna.

“Jega threw our letter at us, saying that he will not investigate.”

The INEC chairman denied the allegation and remained calm despite the scene created by the former minister. His response to Orubebe has generated a discussion on social media with his response now termed as the quote of the day.

“Mr Orubebe, you are a former minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, so you should be careful about the things you say and certainly you should be careful about your public conduct,” Jega told the former minister.
