BallotBoxVote_0A Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, stalwart in Edo State, Elder Agbonkonkon Ogbeide, yesterday, called for the postponement of the 2015 general elections, saying that the renewed violence in some parts of the North as a result of the Boko Haram insurgency had made the country unsafe for elections.

He, however, suggested that the National Assembly should extend President Goodluck Jonathan’s tenure and allow the ongoing national conference run its course before any election can take place, adding that the resolution of the conference will help chart a new course for the country.

Speaking to newsmen, Ogbeide said: “We may not conduct meaningful elections in 2015 with such confusion hanging in the air unresolved. These issues continue to bring about the need to restructure the country. Postponing the election is a price all Nigerians should pay in order to usher in an era of lasting peace and national integration.

“Besides, the Boko Haram insurgents and other flashpoints of restiveness in the country should be fought by all Nigerians before any meaningful general elections can hold in 2015. These are issues that must be discussed at the confab because some groups may not want to remain in Nigeria and that will stop the insurgency. So, it is better to find solution to all the problems we are having before any election will be successful in Nigeria”.
