Although elections have been postponed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), President Goodluck Jonathan has assured Nigerians that the May 29 handover date remains sacrosanct.

In a statement by the special adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, the president said that the adjustment by INEC should be accepted by Nigerians as a way of ensuring they are not disenfranchised in the coming elections.

“This is not a time to trade blames or make statements that may overheat the polity, but a time to show understanding and support the electoral commission to conduct the elections successfully,” he said.

“Following the adjustment of the dates for the 2015 general elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from February 14 and 28 to March 28 and April 11, yesterday, President Goodluck Jonathan has reassured the nation of his commitment to the sanctity of May 29, 2015 as the terminal date of his first term in office,” Abati’s statement read.

“He strongly reaffirms that May 29 is, has been, and will remain sacrosanct.

“The President appeals to all stakeholders to accept the adjustment of the election dates by INEC in good faith, as the electoral body has a responsibility to conduct credible elections in which every Nigerian of voting age is afforded the opportunity to exercise their civic right without any form of hindrance.

“President Jonathan believes that this is not a time to trade blames or make statements that may overheat the polity, but a time to show understanding and support the electoral commission to conduct the elections successfully.

“It is the President’s understanding that INEC’s decision ought not to generate acrimony since it acted within its powers under the law and in consultation with all relevant stakeholders.

“He calls on the international community, civil society and the electorate to continue to support the administration’s commitment to a free, fair, credible, and non-violent electoral process”.

That is the best decision!!! Fashola just collected his PVC today.and am yet to collect mine and so many others because of PVC misplacement in my area,yet we say INEC is prepared. They are not prepared at all. So let the shift be welcomed by all well-meaning Nigerians.This is not about PDP or APC. It is about democracy. Ok, you want to vote but dont want me and my family to vote. It cant happen.

Your first term ends on May 29 and with four more years to you Mr President you will hand over to the
winner in 2019. Please don't forget to support someone under the retirement age for President in 2019.
