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.

    to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed

Buhari has failed, cannot solve Nigeria’s problems – Soyinka blows hot

buhari has failed, cannot solve nigeria’s problems – soyinka blows hot Buhari has failed, cannot solve Nigeria’s problems – Soyinka blows hot Wole Soyinka 1024x576 1

Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, has insisted that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has failed.

According to him, the problems confronting Nigeria were beyond Buhari.

Soyinka stated this while playing host to students who paid him a visit on his 85th birthday.

The literary icon made it clear that while state governments differ in success rates, “central government has failed”.

“The problems of this nation are beyond the solution that can be offered by this government, that’s the first admission; they have to stop thinking in partisan government

“There has always been a major problem with successive governments. It’s easier on the state level to say that a particular state is definitely doing better than another state. But the central government has failed, that’s my view in the main.

“There is a minimal level which any government which has been elected to power must achieve to be considered a true representative of the people.

“Look at what’s happening today with the cattle all over the place, that’s a security issue which should never have reached this level. That singular act has resulted in hundreds of people being killed, farms were taken over; it has wiped away a lot of the positive achievements of the government.

“They need to confront this nation as a habitation of human beings where very serious issues like economy, security, health, even threats of secession come up every day and convoke at the same time, a national conference, what I call an Indaba across all section which we will all meet and debate everything, including the economy of this nation,” Soyinka said.

Yoruba group gives Miyetti Allah 72-hour ultimatum to fish out killers of Pa Fasoranti’s daughter

yoruba group gives miyetti allah 72-hour ultimatum to fish out killers of pa fasoranti’s daughter Yoruba group gives Miyetti Allah 72-hour ultimatum to fish out killers of Pa Fasoranti’s daughter Fasoranti 1024x576

A Southwest group, Yoruba Youth Socio-cultural Association (YYSA), has expressed shock over the killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Afenifere Chairman, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, by persons suspected to be herdsmen in Ondo State.

In a statement signed by its National President, Olalekan Hammed, the group gave the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) a three-day ultimatum to fish out the perpetrators of the nefarious act.

DAILY POST recalls that the murder of the daughter of the Pa Fasoranti‘s daughter was confirmed by Afenifere’s spokesman, Mr. Yinka Odumakin in a statement.

He said 58-year-old Mrs. Olakunrin was killed by persons suspected to be herdsmen while heading to Ore Junction from Akure, Ondo State, where she was attacked and shot by her attackers.

But the Ondo state police command refuted Odumakin’s claim, saying it was an armed robbery attack.

However, the YYSA said it will convene an emergency meeting on Saturday (today) to discuss next line of action after the ultimatum to MACBAN elapses.

The statement reads: “We receive the news of the sudden death of Mrs. Olakunrin with great shock.

“We want the federal government to order immediate investigation on the matter because the culprits should not go unpunished.

“We also give the so-called Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN), Ondo State chapter, three days to fish out the suspected killers of Mrs. Olakunrin.

“We are having an emergency meeting tomorrow (today) in Ibadan to discuss the next line of action.”

Mrs. Olakunrin is the second child of 94-year-old Fasoranti to die, the elder statesman having also lost a daughter, Bunmi, some years ago.
