#TrackNigeria: The Nigeria Union of Journalists has expressed concerned over the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC’s) postponement of the presidential and National Assembly elections scheduled to hold Saturday.

A statement by the National Secretary, Shuaibu Leman and made available to Newsdiaryonline Saturday chided the Commission’s inability to conduct credible elections in the country in view of the last minute hasty postponement of the process, citing logistics problems and operational hiccups.

“It is instructive to note that INEC had before now, consistently assured Nigerians and the International community of its preparedness to give Nigerians free and fair elections. It is therefore pertinent to request for more explanations as to why such a grossly unconventional decision was taken.

“We call on all Journalists to maintain calm and remain resolute in the discharge of their assignments especially as they relate to election matters,” the statement read.
