Namadi SamboVice President Namadi Sambo said in Kano on Thursday that shifting the general elections was a blessing to Nigerians.

Sambo, who spoke with newsmen, explained that holding it as earlier scheduled would have prevented 23 million eligible voters from exercising their civic responsibility.

“We thank God that the postponement of the elections has been a blessing to Nigerians.

“The INEC extended the period for the distribution of the PVCs to March 22, otherwise 23 million Nigerians would have been short changed”, he said.

According to him, the postponement would give many eligible voters the opportunity to collect their PVCs before the deadline.

The Vice President, who was in Kano for a three-day visit, said the PDP was not afraid of the card reader but that the major concern of the party was to have credible elections in the country.

“Let us be fair to everybody. There is nothing wrong with the card reader but our concern is free, fair and credible elections.

“We don’t want anything wrong from the card reader and even to address the issue of corruption, you must ensure free and fair election”, he said.

Sambo expressed optimism that PDP would win the forthcoming general elections in view of the numerous developmental projects the Federal Government executed within the last three and a half years.

“We have achieved the set objective. Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa because of the programmes we put in place”, he added. (NAN)
