Convener of the Nigeria Civil Society Situation Room, Clement Nwankwo says his organisation will continue to watch closely, the processes involved for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct free, fair and credible elections in Nigeria.
In a statement released in the aftermath of the postponement, Situation Room, an umbrella body comprising of several civil society organisations, expressed shock and disappointment.
He said the group would continue to keep an eye on the processes, especially so those sensitive materials already in the country are secure.
“This development (postponement) casts a cloud of doubt on INEC’s credibility and competence in conducting the election, but there is no alternative to democratic elections and we will continue to work towards successful elections in the country.”
He acknowledged that the postponement had huge economic implications on Nigerians, but called on them not to give up, despite it.
“Nigerians should not give up… We urge all eligible voters to come out on February the 23rd, and cast their vote. Nigeria belongs to us all.”
