A former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC), Professor Attahiru Muhammad Jega has described the ruling All Progressives Congress ( APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as Siamese twins of corruption.
He cautioned Nigerians not to vote for them, but seek a credible alternative.
He disclosed this in an interview with the BBC Hausa.
“Failure to bring the desired growth and development in Nigeria within the past 20 years, Nigerians should never give their trust to the parties again. It is now very clear that these parties would never change,even if they are given another chance.
“Nigerians should dump the two parties because of their bad antecedents. Looking at their inability to change the economic fortunes of Nigeria for 20 years now, it is now apparently clear that they would not do anything even if Nigerians vote for any of the two parties again.
“The APC and PDP have formed governments, we were all witnesses.They did not come with a good intention to make amends. If you look at the fight against corruption, all these corrupt people that were supposed to be prosecuted, they sneaked into the APC.
“We are hearing nothing, that is why I have since registered with the Peoples Redemption Party ( PRP) and I am now a PRP member looking for ways to help Nigeria.”
He said he believes now is the time to establish a platform where every good Nigerian should join and contribute towards building the nation on the right path.
Jega further alleged that lack of good leadership in Nigeria threw the nation into it current problems, which he said, has led to series of agitations for the country to be balkanized.
