though it is a major setback for democracy, nothing can stop the change that is
about to be happened, he said. Read the press statement below.
” The All Progressives Congress, APC has just heard over the
news media that The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has
decided to postpone the elections by six weeks on the strength of a letter by
the security chiefs that they cannot provide security for the elections
nationwide because of the commitment of its resources to fight insurgency in
the north eastern part of the country. Continue…

“This is clearly a major setback for Nigerian democracy, and
our Party is meeting in emergency session to study its implications and will
inform Nigerians of its decisions in the next few days.
“In the meantime though what has happened is highly
provocative, I strongly appeal to all Nigerians to remain calm and desist from
violence and any activity which will compound this unfortunate development. We
must not fall into this obvious trap. 
Change we must. They can only delay it; No one can stop it.

“I want to assure all Nigerians that the All Progressives
Congress will not abandon its commitment to change and will sustain the struggle
to establish a new Nigeria.”
