Prof Attahiru Jega, a former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has reportedly stated that Nigeria is in the process of collapse.
The former INEC chairman made this known on Wednesday in Abuja at the 2022 Workers’ Political Conference organized by the Nigeria Labour Congress.
He noted, “Given this, all hands of progressive forces must be on deck to prevent our country from imminent collapse, and to turn it around on to a trajectory of good democratic governance for beneficial democratic, socioeconomic development, and human security for Nigerian citizens.”
He maintained, “The manner by which these myopic ‘elected’ so-called ‘leaders’ and their collaborators, have devastated the Nigerian economy , heightened insecurity, and virtually destroyed the basis for national cohesion and integration, Nigeria, as a potentially great nation, is crying for a rescue mission before it is too late.”
He remarked, “Such a rescue mission cannot be serious, positive and successful, without the active engagement and involvement of the Nigerian workers through their genuine representatives in working-class organisations and movements, in alliance with other progressive and patriotic Nigerians.”
