Nigerians will wake up to a shocker on Saturday.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed the Presidential and National Assembly elections by one week. 

Postponement of the election was announced by the chairman of INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, after a meeting of the leadership of the electoral body. 

He had earlier met with 12 Commissioners of INEC and announced the postponement of the election to February 23 at about 2:40 a.m. 

Professor Yakubu said the election was shifted as a result of logistic issues that the commission had witnessed. 

INEC leadership would meet with members of the international community, observers, party representatives to brief them of the development.
