@inecnigeria that was commanded by President Buhari through AGF Malami to postpone elections and waited till the 11th hour to carry out the order cannot guarantee free, fair and credible elections. Prof Mahmood Yakubu must resign!

There’s need for the Honourable Chairman, INEC (Professor mahmood Yakubu) to apologize to Nigerians who had abandoned all for the sake of the same.

My opinion oooo.

God bless Nigeria. 👍

Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, sometimes you have to swallow your ego and do the meaningful. Postponing elections after voters have done so much just to vote, is very stupid! No election is perfect, you should have continued with the election despite the reports you got. Cc: @inecnigeria
