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).
