Prof Jega, INEC Chairman

The Independent Electoral Commission, INEC has postponed the National Assembly elections across the country  till Monday, April 4th, 2011.

In a televised address, Mr Jega , blamed the postponement on ‘ unprecedented late arrival of results sheets’. He however apologised to Nigerians for the problems.

Before the postponement was announced, the elections  had started, Saturday morning with hitches caused by poor logistics, as materials arrived in many polling stations late and could not even get to other areas in the country.

The resheduled election is for 109 seats in the Senate and 360 seats for the House of Representatives.

 What is your reaction to the postponement of the elections till Monday?
