A popular Senior Advocate of Nigeria and former Secretary-General of Urhobo Progress Union, Olorogun Albert Akpomudje (SAN) has described the postponement of the 2019 General Election with one week as a national disgrace.
The Independent National Electoral Commission had in hours to the commencement of the 2019 Presidential and National Assembly elections announced the postponement of the exercise owing to logistics problems.
Akpomudje said although there is a legal provision for the postponement of an election but the timing was wrong and worrisome.
The legal luminary in a statement personally made available to WARRI TODAY queried the rational for the late postponement, saying “This is a national disgrace.”
He observed that, “Am sad and confused with the news this morning of the postponement of the election.
“There is the provision in the constitution for postponement of election but the timing just few hours to the voting is worrisome.
“My fear is that is INEC ready for the election? If the answer is negative what becomes the faith of Nigerians.”
