The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)
on Saturday, February 7, announced the postponement
of the 2015 General Elections for six weeks.
The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives
Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari had earlier said
that it would be too bad if INEC allowed itself to be
pushed into shifting the polls.
Buhari bared his mind on the matter during an interview
with Reuters on Friday, February 6.
“There will be no delay. But if INEC is compromised
then it will be too bad,” Buhari said.
The APC candidate also expressed optimism at his
chances of winning the election.
“I’m optimistic that I won’t lose. But we signed an
undertaking that it will be violence – free. We are
attempting to stabilize a multi – party democratic
system,” he said.
The former Head of State was also, on Wednesday,
February 4, present at a Council of State meeting which
rejected plans to shift the polls.
Buhari is however yet to issue an official reaction to
the postponement of the elections.
