Postponement of Election in Nigeria

The government of Nigeria is making attempt to postpone the Nigeria presidential election of February 14, 2015

The Nigerian government is putting pressure on Independent National Electoral Commission of Nigeria to postpone the presidential election scheduled to take place on February 14, 2015. The sole reason behind the indefinite postponement of the election is because the incumbent president is not favored to win the election. We want free and fair election in our country as it is the only option to avert the likely anarchy that is going to result in any attempt to truncate our democracy. Our country has already suffered so much in the hands of terrorists. This is not the time we should have an unstable government. We needed a smooth transition to avoid worsening the already bad security situation in the country.

We implore the US Foreign Affairs committee to support Nigerians in asking the government of President Goodluck Jonathan to allow the national electoral body (INEC) to carry out its responsibilities of conducting the presidential election as scheduled.
