Iwu Out!

The acting president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, has sent Maurice Iwu on "pre-retirement leave" from his position as chairman of the Independent National Election Commission (INEC). The retirement is interpreted as a long overdue dismissal by most who know Nigerian politics, given that Iwu supervised the extremely corrupt and mismanaged elections of 2007.

"Iwu sacked" reads the story by Daniel Idonor in both Vanguard and AllAfrica. Funke Adetutu t the Daily Nation regards this as a welcome sacking, as does Bamidele Aturu in her letter to Sahara Reporters.
