Feb 7, 2015

An unconfirmed report by Associated Press says Nigeria has postpone its general elections by six weeks.

According to the report, the decision by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is to enable Africa’s multinational force time, to recover areas under the Boko Haram control in the country’s North East region.

An un-named INEC official told AP millions of Nigerians would be disenfranchised if the elections goes ahead as initially planned.

INEC is expected to make a statement to that effect in a press conference.
