How true is the Tweet claiming Jega condemned the conduct of the 2019 General Elections?

 

Verdict: False

The Claim: Today, a Twitter account belonging to a PDP support group, @PDPVanguard, posted a tweet attributed to the former INEC chairman, Professor Attahiru Jega. The tweet which has already garnered 189 likes, 8 comments and 108 retweets read:
The @MBuhari government had succeeded in destroying the huge gains made in political development and electoral evolution from 2015. @inecnigeria under APC conducted one of the worst elections from Kogi state to Ondo, Ekiti and Osun state down to the general election. #KanoRerun election was not different from motto-pack/garage NURTW election. In some instances/cases, the conduct of NURTW was much better than #KanoRerun election that was held last week.”

CDD fact checkers reached out to the former INEC chairman who denied the claim. According to him, “this is fake news by mischief makers. I am yet to comment on the 2019 elections and did not say what is being attributed to me”.
