Bad governance worsening Nigeria’s insecurity — Jega 

Former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Attahiru Jega, has blamed the worsening insecurity in the country on bad governance. 

Jega, who is the keynote speaker at the Pre-Inaugural Lecture organised in honour of Umaru Bago Mohammed, the governor-elect of Niger State, said the prevailing national security challenges in Nigeria are caused by poor management of complex diversity and poor governance complicated by heightened mobilisation of ethno-religious identities, especially during political and electoral contests
