Nigeria's Postponed Vote: What Happens Now? by Naijiant: 10:27pm On Feb 18, 2019
As the dust settles on Nigeria’s postponed general election, Nigerians have expressed their frustration with the electoral commission. But many are still optimistic their voices will be heard.

Nigerians were left reeling over the weekend after the much-hyped general election was postponed by a week just hours before polls were due to open on the morning of 16 February 2019, with officials citing logistical challenges.

A record 84 million registered voters were left angry and confused at the sudden turn of events — especially considering the long build-up to the election, which had been billed as the tightest political race in the country’s history.

“I’m sad. I’m angry. I’m annoyed. I’m disappointed. That’s how I’m feeling,” one Lagos resident told DW. “Because you wake up all excited about going to vote and then you look at your social media and you see that it’s been postponed.”

As the dust settles, Nigerians are once again preparing to head to the polls on 23 February. But at this point, there are still more questions than answers.

Was the postponement justified?
