National leader of the All Progressives Congress APC, Bola Tinubu, has urged Nigerians to remain committed and not allow the election postponement deter them from exercising their rights on February 23rd.
Tinubu made the call in a statement issued in Lagos.
Presidential and National Assembly elections slated for February 16th were shifted to 23rd by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC on Saturday, hours to the commencement of the polls.
Governorship, state houses of assembly and Federal Capital Territory Area Council polls, earlier fixed for March 2nd were also moved to 9th by INEC due to some challenges.
According to Tinubu, there were reports of eager voters rising early to leave their homes to cast their ballots on Saturday only to be told upon arriving at their appointed polling stations that the election had been postponed.
