The chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega has said that he will be leaving office come June 2015
In an interview with BBC Hausa, Jega said even asked to remain in office, he would decline the offer.
He has successfully conducted two general elections, in 2011 and the present 2015 elections.
Jega said: “I am grateful to God. I was asked to come and contribute my own quota to the national development and I have done my bit to the best of my ability.
“Whatever assignment one will do for five years, just like this difficult one to me, if one is able to successfully accomplish the task, someone else should be given the opportunity.
Because for me I am not interested and if I am requested to serve again, I will not do it, by God’s grace.”
Jega came into office in 2010 after the tenure of predecessor, Prof Maurice Iwu, expired.
