Awww! We all agree he’s very deserving of the award. Outgoing chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Attahiru Jega has been presented with a Certificate of Commendation.

The honour was bestowed to him by US President Barack Obama. US Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle who presented the certificate on behalf of President Obama noted that Jega’s performance was outstanding and worthy of emulation.

Jega expressed surprise at President Barack Obama’s decision to give him an award when the elections are still on.
