The Nigerian electoral body lied when it claimed that bad weather was one of the reasons for the elections postponement on Saturday 16 February 2019, the Minister of State for aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, has said.
Sirika called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to remove the factor of weather as part of reasons for the postponement of Presidential and National Assembly elections slated for Saturday February 16, 2019.
“INEC should say something else as weather was good for flight operations on eve of elections, similarly all airports were directed to open 24 hours during the election period!!!,” Sirika said in a tweet.
I was born in a small village in Cameroon, groomed in Nigeria’s most populous city of Lagos, and moved to Washington D.C. to practice journalism at a global level. From here in the American capital, I ask big questions to leaders around the world, and focus on business, investment and politics in Africa. Back in Africa while doing my job, I was kidnapped, dumped in the woods and left for dead but survived, only to be attacked at gunpoint by sea pirates, arrested by security forces and falsely accused of being a spy for terrorists.
