INEC Chairman Lists Reasons for Postponing Elections

INEC boss cited bad weather and other logistics issues, as well as cases of law suits filed against the commission. 

Professor Mahmood Yakubu, Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said “All these challenges mean that there have been differences in preparations from one state to another. Our overall assessment is that if the elections went on as planned, polls will not open at 8am in all polling units nationwide.

The INEC boss has taken full responsibility for the delay of the election, in his closing words he said “As Chairman of INEC, and on behalf of the Commission, we take full responsibility for what happened and we regret any inconvenience our decision might have caused.
