Ex INEC chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega has shed some light on why he joined the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).
He revealed that he joined the PRP because he is a disciple of its founder, late Mallam Aminu Kano.
His brief words to Punch, “Yes, I am one of his (Aminu Kano’s) disciples.”
This statement confirmed words from the national publicity secretary of the PRP, Abdul Gombe, that Jega had joined the party to chair the Committee of its Strength, Weakness, Opportunities, and Threat (SWOT) analysis committee.
Abdul said choosing Jega was decided during the 62nd national executive committee meeting of the PRP held in Kaduna on June 22, 2019.
The national publicity secretary added that Jega was picked to reposition the PRP for a more nationalistic outlook ahead of the next general polls.
