   The house of representatives has passed a resolution on any plot to remove the chairman of Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) Attahiru Jega before the general election on 28th of March.

   Rep Ali Ahmed (APC, Kwara) said any action by the federal government or any other agency to tamper with the present state of the conduct of the election would bring chaos to the country.

   Members of the House agreed that any individual or association who moved for the removal of the INEC chairman ahead of the polls should be held accountable, as that would spell doom for the country.

   But the motion was fully supported despite facing opposition from the deputy House Leader, Rep Leo Ogor who said the motion was speculative and that nobody is under any illusion of seeing Jega removed at this time.
