Ex-President Mogae: Elections shift better than disenfranchising voters

Former President of Botswana Mr. Festus Mogae yesterday said it was better the 2019 general elections were postponed than for it to be conducted in such a way that some voters would be left out.

Mr. Mogae who is heading the international election observation mission in Nigeria for the National Democratic Institute/International Republican Institute (NDI\IRI) said this during a visit to the head office of Media Trust Limited, publishers of Daily Trust titles.

Mr. Mogae said the last-minute postponement of the election came as a surprise and disappointment but urged Nigerians to exercise patience and understanding with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
