INEC official postpones elections. Now March 28th and April 11th

INEC chairman Prof. Attahiru Jega just briefed the media on the outcome of their meeting today. He said the 2015 general elections has been postponed by 6 weeks. Jega said the decision was made after briefings with various stakeholders notably political parties, security agencies, civil society and the media. He said 26 out of the 28 registered parties were at the meeting. Jega blamed the postponement on lack of security and collection of PVC. He said only 66% of the 96% PVCs has been collected

New dates: the presidential election will now hold March 28th while Governorship election will now hold April 11th. Who saw this coming?

INEC is very much ready to conduct the election according to Jega, but security is not under Inec but GEJ and he has used that to bully Inec into shifting the date.

Smh.... Linda, I saw it coming. PDP will be rejoicing right now. This will give them enough room to perpetuate dia rigging stategies n most likely get jega out of the way, since he has refused to be bought over by the presidency. No wonder that indomie brain man (Okupe) called jega a liar on live tv few days ago. I pray all their gimmicks n restrategizing will work against them. GMB certificate is no longer an issue. Chai... Naija I hail thee. The chief of defence staff claims they need 6weeks to fight boko-haram n boko boys have been wrecking havoc since 2009. RIP to all d dead heroes (soldiers). But then, that reason is untenable and baseless.

The military has been used again! This time to arm-twist INEC into postponing the planned election, despite the commission's emphasis on its preparedness to conduct the election. It's a shame and deceit for the military to say they cannot provide security because they're engaging insurgency in the North-East, so our military has been incapacitated to such an extent? If they've been unable to ensure security in the NE for over a year now, how credible is this claim to stabilize the NE region in 6weeks? This whole orchastration is dubious and crafty.
