We are very sorry for postponing elections, we take full responsibility-INEC Chairman, Mahmood

The chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Mahmoud Yakubu has taken full responsibility for the cancellation and shift of the elections meant to hold today (Saturday).

He also apologized to Nigerians for the inconveniences and embarrassment it has caused the nation.

Yakubu stated this while speaking at a world press conference in Abuja on Saturday.

The commission refuted anxieties that it succumbed to political influence in postponing the elections.

He hinged the reasons for the shift in the poll to bad weather and logistics issue.

According to the chairman, campaigns and collection of Permanent Voter Cards remained closed.

“Until close to 2 (this morning), we were still confident elections would hold,” he added.
