The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Saturday explained why it postponed the general elections.

INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, addressed reporters at the press centre of the commission’s headquarters in Abuja, the nation’s Capital.

The Presidential and National Assembly elections were earlier scheduled to hold on February 16, while that of Governorship and State of Assembly were expected to hold on March 2.

Professor Yakubu, however, told reporters that the polls would not go on as planned due to some challenges encountered by the commission.

According to him, the decision to postpone the polls followed a careful review of the implementation of the logistics and operational plans put in place for the exercise.

The INEC boss reiterated the commitment of the electoral body to conducting a free, fair, and credible exercise.

He explained that the postponement of the elections would afford them the opportunity to address the issues raised, although the decision was a tough one to make.

Professor Yakubu revealed that the commission would inform critical stakeholders in the elections about the new development at a meeting which would hold later on Saturday.

Read the full speech by the INEC boss below;

Ladies and gentlemen, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) met on Friday 15, February , and reviewed its preparations for the general elections scheduled for Saturday, 16 February , and Saturday 2 March .

Following a careful review of the implementation of its logistics and operational plan, and the determination to conduct free, fair, and credible elections, the commission came to the conclusion that proceeding with the elections as scheduled is no longer feasible.

Consequently, the commission has decided to reschedule the Presidential and National Assembly elections to Saturday, 23 February 2019.

Furthermore, the Governorship, State House of Assembly, and Federal Capital Territory Area Council elections are rescheduled to Saturday, 9 March 2019.

This will afford the commission the opportunity to address identified challenges in order to maintain the quality of our elections.

This was a difficult decision for the commission to take but necessary for the successful delivery of the elections and the consolidation of our democracy.

The commission will meet with key stakeholders to update them on this development at 2pm on Saturday, 16 February 2019, at the Abuja International Conference Centre.

Thank you very much.

‘Nigeria on red alert’ – Agency warns, list 13 states to experience more flooding 20190917 083229

The Director-General of the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (NIHSA), Clement Nze, on Monday said 13 states would witness more
flood this year.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, Nze said 13 states in the country should be at alert against flood following the rise in the water levels of River Niger and River Benue

Nze listed Kebbi, Niger,Kwara, Nasarawa, Kogi, Edo, Anambra, Delta, Rivers, Bayelsa, Adamawa,Taraba and Benue as being among states to experience flooding.

He said Nigeria was on flood red alert and that the flood sighted in Niger Republic was expected to arrive the Nigerian border through Kebbi State yesterday.

According to him, this was also because of the steady rise of the River Benue owing to the local rainfall with attendant heavy inflows from the tributaries of the river.

He warned that water from six of the nine countries that make up the Niger Basin Authority was pouring into the country and could lead to severe flooding in those states.

Obasanjo breaks silence on Xenophobia attacks, sends letter to South Africa leader

Obasanjo breaks silence on Xenophobia attacks, sends letter to South Africa leader Olusegun Obasanjo1 1024x631 1

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has finally reacted to xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and other African nationals in South Africa.

Obasanjo in a letter written to the founder of the Inkatha Freedom Party, in South Africa, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi on Tuesday, urged Nigerians and others African countries whose citizens were affected by xenophobic attacks to to the African Union.

The former president further described xenophobic attacks on foreigners by South Africans as a great disservice to Africa, NAN reports.

Obasanjo called for urgent reconciliation between the countries affected and South Africa, adding that repatriation and revenge was not the best solution.

The letter read, “For any African country to encourage or allow or not seriously sanction xenophobia against Africans in their country is a great disservice not only to the country where xenophobia takes place and the countries of the victims concerned, but also a great disservice to the whole of Africa and black race.

“At this juncture, there is need for fence-mending, reconciliation and wound-binding between South Africa and the countries whose citizens have been victims of xenophobia and afrophobia in South Africa.

“As a suggestion, South Africa should send emissaries to the countries concerned to explain, apologise and agree on the way forward for mutual understanding, accommodation, reconciliation, and binding the wound to promote unity, concord, and brotherhood in Africa.

“Repatriation of Nigerians from South Africa is obviously not a permanent solution. At best it is palliative. But the hurt will still remain for some time. Neither is revenge a desirable solution.

“Mutual understanding and acknowledgement of what needs to be done on all sides is imperative and getting down to doing them is the solution that will serve Nigeria and South Africa and indeed Africa well particularly in this era of Africa Continental Free Trade Area opportunities.

“Nigeria and South Africa must stand together to champion African cause and to jointly shepherd African development, unity, cooperation, security, and progress to make the 21st century Africa’s century.”
