Elections Postponement Will Deepen Democracy – PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation


Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation (PDPPCO), last night, agreed with INEC’s decision to postpone the general elections, saying it is in the best interest of deepening democracy and in the national interest.

Director of Media and Publicity of the PDPPCO, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, made this known in a statement, yesterday.

He commended INEC “for showing the courage to shift the elections after acknowledging the fact that its state of preparedness was not 100 per cent.”

“Since this decision has been taken in the interest of deepening democracy and in national interest, we accept it in good faith and we commend INEC’s courage and obvious commitment to ensuring a free and fair election,” Fani-Kayode said.

“With this decision, INEC has allayed the fears of many of our citizens that they may not have had the opportunity to vote for the candidates and parties of their choice on Election Day.

“INEC has, by the decision, ensured that no one will be disenfranchised and has helped to guarantee the safety and security of every single one of our citizens during the course of the elections,” he added.
