President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday apologized to Nigerians for the postponement of the 2019 general elections by one week.

He felt bitter that many Nigerians must have spent their resources in moving from one location to the other towards voting in the postponed elections.

Buhari, who returned to Abuja from Katsina State, spoke with journalists at the Presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

Asked why he was disappointed over the postponement of elections, he said he was disappointed because INEC has got all the time and resources needed and were therefore supposed to work according to their programme.

On his message to Nigerians and his supporters, he said they should be patient, let them come out a week from today and vote.
