You are not. It's part of the format to make you think they are sincere people. By Monday Now, they will continue with their work saying the APC government is the next best thing to Jollof Rice and chicken.

I weep for the idiots still supporting this admin. Was this not one of the reasons we voted out GEJ. Cluelessness we called. What do we call this one now.

Admin4322:
The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has asked Nigerians to remain peaceful in the face of provocation.

Atiku said this in a statement he personally signed in the early hours of Saturday while reacting to the shift in the dates for the conduct of the general elections as announced by the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu.

Atiku signed the statement which he addressed to Nigerians from Yola, Adamawa State where he had gone to cast his vote.

The former vice-president said that it was unfortunate that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari failed to utilise the time it had to organise the elections.

He likened the actions of the commission to the Biblical hand of Esau but the voice of Jacob.

He said, “As you know, the Independent National Electoral Commission has announced a postponement of the elections until 23 February and 9 March respectively.

“The Buhari administration has had more than enough time and money to prepare for these elections and the Nigerian people were poised and ready to perform their civic responsibility by voting in the elections earlier scheduled for Saturday, 16 February, 2019.

“This postponement is obviously a case of the hand of Esau but the voice of Jacob. By instigating this postponement, the Buhari administration hopes to disenfranchise the Nigerian electorate in order to ensure that turn out is low on the rescheduled date. Nigerians must frustrate their plans by coming out in even greater numbers on Saturday, 23 February and Saturday, 9 March respectively.

“Knowing that the Nigerian people are determined to reject them, they are desperate and will do anything in their power to avoid their rejection by the Nigerian people.

“Their plan is to provoke the public, hoping for a negative reaction, and then use that as an excuse for further anti-democratic acts.

As such, I call on all Nigerians to be patient. We have tolerated the maladministration of this government for four years. We can extend our tolerance a few more days and give them our verdict via our votes.”

Atiku asked Nigerians to maintain the peace and still endure to come out to vote on the new dates.

He said, “Maintain the peace and be law abiding. Do not react to this provocation with anger, violence or any action that might be exploited by those who do not want this election to hold. Remain calm. We will overcome this. You can postpone an election, but you cannot postpone destiny.

“Please come out to vote on Saturday, 23 February and Saturday, 9 March respectively. Frustrate those who do not want this election to hold by coming out in very large numbers. That is the best antidote to their plans.

“May God bless you and may God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

After Atiku it is Moghalu. Corruption fighters should seek job with the EFCC while Economic gurus take the Presidency. Nigeria can never be returned to cluelessness anymore, we have suffered enough.

Reminds me of when Jonathan postponed the elections too.

I'm sure the same people who defended that postponement will be the ones who will shout the loudest now, and those who condemned that postponement will defend this one.

Nigeria is a banana republic.

1. The elections were postponed because of the insecurities in parts of NE Nigeria.

2. The elections were postponed a week before the D-day.

Can these idiot just be quiet for once?
Was he not alive when Jonathan postpone 2015 election.
Now listen, just before Jonathan postponed 2015, Jega admitted on the floor of National Assembly that INEC had still not printed about one million PVCs. And a lot more yet undistributed. So clearly you could not disenfranchise millions of voters because of INEC inefficiency. And it was postponed well in advance, not hours to the polls opening. Let's be fair. It's 8 years since polls were postponed close to election. BUT INEC has had plenty of time to improve since.

At least in 2015 Jonathan/PDP clearly explained reasons for postponement, not blaming opposition. But here APC is mischievously blaming PDP, never ready to take responsibility.
