INEC’s broke, can’t pay salary – Jega

Chairman of INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega, disclosed  to members of the House of Representatives Committee on Electoral Matters, who visited INEC headquarters in Abuja, yesterday that INEC is so broke that it may not be able to pay staff salaries from next month.

Dr. Abdulkadir Sulaiman, who represented Prof. Jega, said: “If we don’t do anything about it on time, we may not be able to pay salary by next month.”

Following this development, the chairman called on the legislators to quickly intervene and save the situation, else the commission’s aspiration of conducting the 2015 general election in line with international best practices would be a mirage.
