|Jega: INEC Chief|
The CD Coordinator, who was very annoyed at the postponement of the national Assembly election scheduled to be conducted today, Saturday 2nd April, 2011, reasoned that " the INEC Chairman had asked for postponement before, which was granted, if he knew that he was not ready, why not ask for another postponement? he did not, only to postpone a scheduled election at the eleventh hour. He is incompetent and should be removed."
Mrs Ayo Obe, a civil rights campaigner and former Executive Director of Civil Liberties Organization(CLO) in a discussion programme on a local television channel this afternoon, monitored by chidi opara reports, however walked a different path. She was of the opinion that Professor Jega should be allowed "to finish what he started." She nonetheless blamed the INEC boss for the lapses leading to the last minute postponement and advised that INEC should announce detailed logistics plans for the coming elections.
It would be noted that Professor Attahiru Jega this afternoon announced the postponement till Monday, April 4th, 2011 of the national Assembly election citing disappointments by vendors as the major reason. The INEC Chief apologized for the lapses leading to the postponement and craved the understanding of all stake holders.
