It isn't a dream, sister babepink. It happens that brother sarrki hasn't been paid his January allowance by BMC. Hence his atypical comment

If we all were disgusted like this in 2011 when Obasanjo and Jonathan commandeered Jega to postpone the election by 9am when we have already queued up to vote... I am sure today wouldn’t have happened... Atiku I wished you did say this in 2011

That's why we voted GEJ out for his incompetence only to enthroned the supreme leader of incompetence aka the lifeless president of Nigeria Buhari

Ok sir, we are with you

He so right....they just want to disenfranchise the public, have a low turn out next week...and then bubu will win with majority north vote.

The northerners are there already...they don't need to travel.

If as an APC supporter u still don't av sense now...no hope for u.

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.”

This one is cancelled 5hours 2d election. If they had announced d postponement a week ago, it wouldn't have been this bad cos people would have had time to prepare. Some have already fixed wedding 4 next week. INEC can't say that it was only yday that it knew that it has logistics problems
