Some of the electorate interviewed by New Sentinel were actually mad with anger and wondered why INEC will “cancel a wedding ceremony on the day of wedding”.
A respondent who begged to remain anonymous while reacting to what he called the unpatriotic act of Prof Mahmood Yakubu led-INEC said the electoral body has taken the country to the point of global disgrace.
He called on INEC and the managers of the body to defend their action now or forever remain silent and hide their head in shame. According to the visibly worried voter, “The integrity of 2019 elections is at stake and Nigerians will find it difficult to accept the outcome of next Saturday election result,” he added.
Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council has said it is disappointed in the postponement of the 2019 elections.
