The cancelled election has ruined my plans

The cancelled election has ruined my plans

” What kind country is this? I shifted my wedding from 2nd February, 2019 to 23rd because I was to do it on the Island and they said Access Bank is doing marathon and 16th was election. I have paid for the hall, and other things and now they have moved the elections to 23rd February. What am I going to do now?” lamented a frustrated Tony whose wedding ceremony was billed for next week saturday after the elections if it had taken place today.

Nigerians were ready to hit the polls this morning to decide on who will be the next president when it was announced that the election has been postponed by a week. Sahara reporters, an online news agency had given a hint on the postponement of the election but the INEC helmsman had denied the news that the election will still hold.

The news did not go down well with lots of Nigerians because so many plans have been destroyed. So many have traveled to their villages for the purpose of casting their votes and now with this new development, some may come back and not return again.

According to a secondary school teacher in the north, this new development has disrupted the academic calendar of schools. All secondary schools have been shut down because of the election and asked to resume on Tuesday. Mock examinations in preparedness for Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE) was to commence on the 4th of March,2019. He said no student will resume school until 26th of February,2019.

There so many activities slated for 23rd of February such as burial ceremonies, birthday parties, marriages etc that needs to be rescheduled. A friend spoke to me about missing out on meeting his targets because of this election slated for 16th and now it has been moved to 23rd.

The PDP who is the main challenger of the incumbent APC government, has pointed accusing fingers at the APC as a ploy to disfranchise the elections but APC government has come out to say they are disappointed with the electoral body for the postponement. President Buhari is insisting that the elections should go ahead.

INEC had given the reason for the postponement as lack of preparedness on her part and that it was a tough decision to make.

More details coming soon.
