Governance: Former INEC Boss Challenges Northern Elite On Good, Selfless Leadership

Former Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission INEC Attahiru Jega has challenged leaders in north on good, patriotic and selfless leadership in the mould of the late eminent statesman, Alhaji Maitama Sule.

He made the call during the Maitama Sule Leadership Lecture Series organised by the Coalition of Northern Nigeria, CNG   in Katsina state.

Jega however described the late Sule, who was the Danmasanin Kano, as a selfless and patriotic Nigerian who served the country well and protected northerners.

The Former INEC Boss noted that the fundamental causes of the crises originate from poor leadership and selfishness, with narrow vision and ideas to develop the country.

Jega said that erstwhile northern leaders, such as Maitama Sule and others, led the country at their youthful ages, and each of them did very well in protecting and developing the region and ensuring its integrity.

He also called on the youth to know that they had a great task of developing themselves through active participation in politics in order not to let vandals destroy the nation economically.

Earlier, the Special Adviser to Governor Aminu Masari on Security Matters Ibrahim Katsina, called for the collapse of the country’s borders since Nigerian borders were poorly managed.
