Prof. Jega announces postponement of Nigeria elections+ APC reacts

 So I woke up this morning to the news that the general elections which were supposed to begin next week have been postponed. *angry face*.

Then again, if you did not see this coming, you are either a learner or you don't know how things work in this country.

Come on, the signs were there, I only hoped the people that have the "power" to do and undo in this country would listen to the wish of the people for once.

Anyhoo, enough of my ranting. The new dates are ; March 28th for the Presidential elections while the Governorship elections will  hold on April 11th.

Read APC's press statement after the jump
The All Progressives Congress, APC, has just heard over the news media that The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has decided to postpone the elections by six weeks on the strength of a letter by the security chiefs that they cannot provide security for the elections nationwide because of the commitment of its resources to fight insurgency in the north eastern part of the country.

This is clearly a major setback for Nigerian democracy, and our Party is meeting in emergency session to study its implications and will inform Nigerians of its decisions in the next few days.
In the meantime, though what has happened is highly provocative, I strongly appeal to all Nigerians to remain calm and desist from violence and any activity which will compound this unfortunate development. We must not fall into this obvious trap. Change we must. They can only delay it; No one can stop it.

I want to assure all Nigerians that the All Progressives Congress will not abandon its commitment to change and will sustain the struggle to establish a new Nigeria.

John E. K. Odigie-Oyegun. CON.
National Chairman, APC
