#ElectionPostponed: What Tinubu Said
The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has also reacted to the postponement of elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
The former Lagos State governor expressed dissatisfaction with the poll shift, saying INEC ought not to have waited until the election day before taking the decision.
Tinubu, who is a Co-Chairman of the APC’s Presidential Campaign Council, said this in a statement.
He, however urged Nigerians not to be discouraged from coming out to vote on February 23 because of the postponement.
He said this would have lessened the feeling of disappointment expressed by Nigerians, urging them to troop out and vote on February 23.
The statement read, “We are also perplexed that INEC literally waited so late in the day to make known the obstacles preventing it from keeping faith to the election schedule. INEC could have and should have given the nation more ample and earlier warning. This could have perhaps lessened the pervasive disappointment that we all now feel. It also would have helped people to better order their steps.
“Do not allow this delay to deter you from the expression of your democratic rights. What you had set your mind to do on February 16, keep your mind and heart on for February 23.”
