Nigeria’s National Security Adviser Wants Elections Postponed

Nigeria’s national security adviser, Col. Sambo Dansuki
today during a question and answer session at a conference in London suggested next
month’s presidential and parliamentary elections should be postponed because
not all voter cards had been distributed. Dansuki said this has been his advice
to INEC, but the chairman keeps insisting everyone will have one before
elections, but he doubts if that can be so. Hear him;
“We said (to the Independent National Electoral Commission),
look, there is a problem… We still have about 30 million… (voter) cards to
“Look at the possibility of shifting this thing and doing it
when everybody has a card because it doesn’t cost you anything, it is still
within the law and it is safer for all of us.

“So, that is what we are encouraging. They (INEC) keep
assuring us that everybody will have his card but I doubt it,” he said.
