Why Saturday Election Was Postponed by Sensationcreed: 10:36am On Feb 18
WHY SATURDAY ELECTION OF POSTPONED
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has attributed the issue of logistics challenge and sabotage on the the commission efforts, as some of the reasons responsible for the one week shifted in the elections.
lNEC has rescheduled the 2019 general elections by one week by postponing the Presidential and National Assembly elections from Feb. 16 to Feb. 23, as well as the Governorship, State Assembly and FCT Area Council elections scheduled for March 2 to March 9.
Yakubu said that the plan for the 2019 general elections was ready in November 2017 and INEC subsequently issued the timetable and schedule of activities for the elections over one year ago, on Jan. 9, 2018.

He said that the commission carefully followed its timetable and implemented 13 of the 14 activities as scheduled and had not missed the date fixed for any single activity.

He, however, said that in preparing for the elections, the commission came face-to-face with the realities of conducting such an extensive national deployment of men and materials in a developing country like Nigeria.

He said that not only had INEC recruited and trained about one million young people to serve as ad hoc staff, it had also undertook steps for the deployment of the magnitude of materials mobilized for the elections.
For instance, the Commission has printed 421.7 million ballot papers for six scheduled elections, as well as 13.6 million leaves of result forms for the Presidential election alone.

Indeed, managing 91 political parties and 23,316 candidates for whom votes will be cast in 119,973 polling units by over 84 million voters is certainly astounding.

Yakubu said that it wasn't unexpected that such a tremendous national mobilization of men and materials would encounter operational challenges and INEC has had its own fair share of such challenges.

He disclosed that there had been delays in delivering ballot papers and result sheets for the elections, which according to him, was not unusual.
