Our source claims electoral commission (INEC) boss Attahiru Jega will announce a postponement of the (s)elections this evening. The (s)elections will be held in six weeks time rather than on 14 February.
He had a meeting with the president last night and was told the (s)elections should be postponed because of the difficulties with getting voters cards to voters. Another reason provided by the president was that the military has promised him that they, alongside neighbouring forces from Chad and Cameroon, are flushing Boko Haram militants out of the northeast. And need about six weeks to complete the job. This would help millions in that area to be able to vote.
While conventional wisdom holds that voters in the northeast would favour APC candidate Muhammadu Buhari, there are millions of Christians from that area as well. The president sees them as potential supporters.
