The recent postponement of the much-awaited general elections that were expected to kick-off on Saturday, February 16, has triggered series of mixed reactions and comments from stakeholders, including Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
While describing the postponement as ‘truly disappointing’, Osinbajo said the march to the Next Level continues.
Recall that INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, explained that the decision to postpone the polls followed a careful review of the implementation of the logistics and operational plans put in place for the exercise.
In a tweet by Laolu Akande, Yemi Osinbajo’s spokesman, the Vice President said: “Mr. President was already in Daura in Katsina State and the VP already in Lagos to vote this morning before the postponement just announced by INEC.
“This is truly disappointing, but the march to the Next Level continues. Nigeria will prevail.”
No doubt, the development has caused much inconvenience for quite a lot of persons who have some personal plans after the presidential and National Assembly polls before it was postponed. Some have even berated the electoral body and condemned its decision.
