The spokesman of the House of Representatives, Abdulrazak Namdas (APC-Adamawa), on Saturday decried the postponement of the general elections.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday, Namdas described the postponement as “unfortunate.” The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had on Saturday shifted the elections few hours to the opening of polling units.
The commission blamed the postponement on logistics challenges that could affect the process negatively.
Namdas expressed hope that the postponement would be a blessing in disguise for the country.
“It is unfortunate that it has happened like this, we hope that the outcome of the postponement will be the best for Nigerians.
“I hope that it is a blessing in disguise, it is better to have an election that is credible than to rush and do the elections with issues,” he said.
NAN reports that the commission had postponed the Presidential and National Assembly elections from February 16 to February 23, and moved the Governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections from March 2 to March 9.
Continentour.com.ng earlier reported that the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council has condemned the postponement of the general elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The spokesperson for the presidential campaign council, Festus Keyamo, in a statement made available to Continentour.com.ng, condemned the postponement of the elections but urged the APC supporters to remain patient and determined.
