The Immediate past Electoral Commissioner of Nigeria, Prof. Attahiru Jega, will visit Ghana from Monday, December 14, to  Wednesday, December 16, 2015 to deliver public lectures.

Under the auspices of the IEA, Prof Attahiru Jega will deliver two public lectures in Accra and Kumasi during which he will shed light on the recent general election in Nigeria and factors that ensured the credibility of the electoral process.

The rationale for Prof. Jega’s visit is for Ghana and other African countries to draw valuable lessons from his experience and insights.

These lectures are part of efforts by the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) to promote good governance and credible elections in Ghana.

As EC boss, Prof.  Jega played a leading role in ensuring credible and peaceful elections in Africa’s most populous country, Nigeria. 

His successful steering of affairs during the recent elections in 2015 ensured stability in Nigeria.

He has since become one of the most sought-after figures in Africa and has to date received several awards, including the 2015 Charles Manatt Democracy Award in Washington DC.

The details of the lectures are: Monday, December 14, 2015 at the Main Auditorium of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Ridge from 4:00p.m. – 7:00p.m. and on Wednesday, December 16, 2015 at the Golden Tulip Hotel, Kumasi from 10:00a.m. – 1:00p.m.
