Nigeria Parliamentary Elections Delayed

Jega has taken full responsibility for the fiasco, and apologized to Nigerians while appealing for their continued support. He said a vendor that was supposed to supply results sheets and ballots was unable to deliver them on time.

Jega also assured that the postponement is to ensure the credibility of the elections. However, many Nigerians have expressed disappointment with this postponement.

The late take off in many polling stations in Abuja was one of the first indications that the process was facing challenges. There was a large turn-out of eligible voters who came with hope of exercising their civic responsibility.

According to officials the election materials have arrived and will be distributed to all thirty six states before Monday the fourth of April when the parliamentary elections are expected to be held.
