By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Attahiru Jega has asked President Muhammadu Buhari match his words with action following his 60th Independence speech.
Jega, who spoke during Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, challenged the Federal Government to focus on the implementation of policies that will have positive impact in the lives of Nigerians rather than engaging in propaganda.
“What is clear is that the speech carries quite a lot of the right things to be said on a day like this. But for me, the critical thing is not what is said but how it is followed up,” Professor Jega noted.
“I think it is important to reflect on the issue of what government needs to do to ensure that when you call upon Nigerians to take pride in Nigeria, there are certain things that encourage and help them to be able to do that,” he said.
