ABUJA: The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has explained why it postponed the general elections earlier scheduled for Saturday, 16 February, 2019.

The commission shifted the election by one week, explaining how difficult it was for it to shift the general elections.
INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu who briefed journalists at about 2:43am on Saturday, in Abuja, said the commission had met on Friday, 15th February 2019 and reviewed its preparations for the 2019 General Elections earlier scheduled for Saturday, and therefore, shifted the Presidential and National Assembly elections to Saturday, 23rd February 2019.
He said the commission would later in the day be meeting with key stakeholders at the International Conference Centre, Abuja to discuss issues surrounding the development.
According to him, “Following a careful review of the implementation of its logistics and operational plan and the determination to conduct free, fair and credible elections, the Commission came to the conclusion that proceeding with the elections as scheduled is no longer feasible, said Yakubu.
He said, “consequently, the Commission has decided to reschedule the Presidential and National Assembly Elections to Saturday, 23rd February 2019. Furthermore, the Governorship, State House of Assembly and Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Area Council Elections is rescheduled to Saturday 9th March 2019. This will afford the Commission the opportunity to address identified challenges in order to maintain the quality of our elections.
“This was a difficult decision for the Commission to take, but necessary for the successful delivery of the elections and the consolidation of our democracy.
“The Commission will meet key stakeholders to update them on this development at 2pm on Saturday, 16th February 2019 at the Abuja international Conference Centre”, he added.”

PDP’s Atiku Shocks President Buhari, Shakes INEC, Calls for Nationwide Peace and Calm

, has called on Nigerians to be calm and patient in the face of provocation, over the postponement of Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections.[/font]

[font=Charter, Helvetica, 华文细黑]In a statement personally signed by the former Vice President, on Saturday morning, he likened the postponement of the elections to the ‘hand of Esau, but the voice of Jacob’.[/font]
[font=Charter, Helvetica, 华文细黑]The statement reads in full:[/font]
[font=Charter, Helvetica, 华文细黑]As you know, the Independent National Electoral Commission has announced a postponement of the elections, until 23rd February and 9th March, respectively.[/font]
[font=Charter, Helvetica, 华文细黑]The Buhari administration has had more than enough time and money to prepare for these elections, and the Nigerian people were poised and ready to perform their civic responsibility, by voting in the elections earlier scheduled for Saturday, 16th February, 2019.[/font]
[font=Charter, Helvetica, 华文细黑]This postponement is obviously a case of the hand of Esau, but the voice of Jacob. By instigating this postponement, the

administration hopes to disenfranchise the Nigerian electorate, in order to ensure that turn out is low on the rescheduled date. Nigerians must frustrate their plans, by coming out in even greater numbers on Saturday, 23rd February and Saturday, 9th March, respectively.[/font]

[font=Charter, Helvetica, 华文细黑]Knowing that the Nigerian people are determined to reject them, they are desperate and will do anything in their power to avoid their rejection by the Nigerian people.[/font]
[font=Charter, Helvetica, 华文细黑]Their plan is to provoke the public, hoping for a negative reaction, and then use that as an excuse for further anti-democratic acts. As such, I call on all Nigerians to be patient. We have tolerated the maladministration of this government for four years. We can extend our tolerance a few more days, and give them our verdict via our votes. Maintain the peace, and be law abiding. Do not react to this provocation with anger, violence, or any action that might be exploited by those who do not want this election to hold.[/font]
[font=Charter, Helvetica, 华文细黑]Remain calm. We will overcome this. You can postpone an election, but you cannot postpone destiny.[/font]
[font=Charter, Helvetica, 华文细黑]Please. Come out to vote on Saturday, 23rd February, and Saturday, 9th March, respectively. Frustrate those who do not want this election to hold, by coming out in very large numbers. That is the best antidote to their plans.[/font]
[font=Charter, Helvetica, 华文细黑]May God bless you, and may God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.[/font]
