Supporters of President Goodluck Jonathan has called for the resignation of the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega.
The supporters, under the aegis of Southern Nigeria Peoples Assembly led by Chief Edwin Clark, made the demand at a press briefing in Abuja on Thursday.
Among those at the briefing were a former Minister of Information, Walter Ofonagoro; a former Governor of Anambra State, Dr. Chuwuemeka Ezeife; a former Commissioner in Bayelsa State, Chief Whisky Ayakeme; Dr. Cairo Ojugboh and Sen. Femi Okunronmu.
Members of the group, who are staunch supporters of President Jonathan, also demanded the postponement of the February elections.

They threatened that elections won’t hold in southern part of the country if the commission should decide to go ahead with the scheduled elections.
