It is election, not WAR! Bombs, paramilitary, police, security agents on the prowl!!!
The Independent Electoral Commission, INEC has postponed the National Assembly elections across the country till Monday, April 4th, 2011.
Before the postponement was announced, the elections had started, Saturday morning with hitches caused by poor logistics, as materials arrived in many polling stations late and could not even get to other areas in the country.Voters were lining up in Kano on Saturday.
The resheduled election is for 109 seats in the Senate and 360 seats for the House of Representatives.
A total of 73.5 million people across the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, were registered by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to vote in the 120,000 polling booths designated for the purpose.
Presidential comes up on April 9, and the Governorship/State Assembly is scheduled for April 16.
The elections are the most expensive in Nigeria's history with INEC requesting N87.7 billion.
