Jega said this in an interview with Toyin Falola via Zoom on Monday December 13, adding that Nigerians have suffered serious setback in the hands of the two parties and a group of elites who are not ready to transform the nation.

He Said;

“There is no doubt that the ruling elites in the country cannot transform the country into a better one. They have been in power for all these years but nothing has changed. The dominant parties, that is PDP and APC, have closed the opportunity of recruiting good and competent people into the system of leadership.

“They only give chances to people in their camp to continue ruling us. And this has prevented many people particularly the youths from joining politics; they always think it is a bad thing.

“So there is a great need to have competent people who recognise the need to change our development trajectory and save the country at large.”
