Nigerians, who were expected to cast their votes last Saturday to choose a President and elect a new National Assembly were shocked when the polls were postponed on election day.
The presidential and National Assembly elections would now take place on Saturday February 23, 2019, while the governorship, state house of assembly and other elections would take place on March 9.
The Independent National Electoral Commission said it postponed the elections to address operational issues.
But the postponement was greeted with criticisms and calls for the resignation of the electoral body chair.
