The presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) Kingsley Moghalu has added his voice to the decision by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the general elections.
While speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Moghalu said the postponement by INEC is a signpost of the recycling failure under the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Describing the decision by INEC as burdensome with serious implications, Moghalu however called on Nigerians to remain calm and resolute to vote for a new kind of leadership next weekend.
He said; “School children will now face further disruptions to the school calendar. Economic activities will suffer further setbacks.
“And Nigerians who have traveled to various parts of the country to vote or monitor the elections that would have held today now face logistical nightmares.
Moghalu also used the opportunity to thank his teeming volunteers and campaign supporters for their continued supports while restating his commitment to serve if voted into power.
“I would like to thank the teeming volunteers of my campaign and supporters of our party, the YPP, for their service to our country. Let us ensure this election is a watershed for the liberation of our country from the vice-like grip of incompetence and lack of vision.
“I remain committed to providing our country the needed visionary and competent leadership,” Mr Moghalu said.
