Nigeria Decides 2019: INEC Chairman Replies Oshiomhole About Postponing Elections

Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Saturday afternoon attacked Mahmood Yakubu, chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), over the postponement of the elections.

At INEC’s press conference to explain the reasons for shifting the polls by a week, Oshiomhole wondered why the commission waited until 2am of the day of the elections, to move it.

He described the action of the commission as an embarrassment to the country, demanding that INEC should tender an apology.

“Why at 2am on the day of the election? Why? The problem is not about the postponement but why 2am on the day of the election. You have explanations to do. If you had told us since, we would have planned.

“Why didn’t you tell us 48 hours ago? You must apologise to Nigerians because you have embarrassed us as a nation,” Oshiomhole said.

In response, Yakubu said: “Until close to 2am, we were still confident that the elections would hold.”
