President Goodluck Jonathan has re-assured Nigerians that the elections re-scheduled to hold on March 28 and April 11, 2015, would not be shifted again.
The President Jonathan gave the assurance in his closing remarks during the presidential debate, held in Abuja on Sunday.
The Independent National Electoral Commission had shifted the polls earlier scheduled for February 28 and March 11.
The President, during his last presidential media chat, said that the INEC Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega, never informed him of his decision to postpone the polls after he (Jega) received a letter from the National Security Adviser calling for six weeks postponement of the elections.
He then thanked Nigerians for showing interest in the electoral process and assured that there would be no cause to postpone the elections again.
According to him, “Let me use this unique opportunity to thank Nigerians today for showing much interest in the electoral process and to re-assure Nigerians that elections will hold as scheduled by INEC.
The presidential election and the National Assembly election on the 28th of this month, and the governorship and the state assembly election on 11th of next month.”
