Nigeria elections 2019: What Obi said about postponement of polls

Obi reacts as PDP takes over Zamfara State

The Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic, Peter Obi, says nothing has changed about the postponement of Presidential and National Assembly elections, earlier billed to hold today.

The former governor is calm and unruffled over the postponement of the polls, his media aide, Val Obienyem has claimed.In a reaction to the postponement, Obianyem, who condemned the postponement, described INEC’s action as unexplainable.

He said Obi returned to his Agulu home in Anaocha Local Government Area of the state on Friday to participate in the polls only to hear of postponement.

He said, “How can INEC convince anybody that it suddenly discovered its unpreparedness on the day of the election?

“What of foreign observers already in the country? What of those that traveled home from their destinations? What of those contesting that had already paid their agents? There are many questions begging for answers.

He added,” Early this morning I came to Mr. Peter Obi’s house to know the next line of action. Knowing what happened, any person in his shoes will naturally feel pensive and even look morose , but from my long association with him, he remains calm at worst situations that will ordinarily derive other men out of their wits.

“Confirming what I have always known about him, on reaching the house, I was told he left early for morning mass. I called his PA to get me his picture with the Rev. Fr. that celebrated mass. I did this as my contribution to evangelization and to exhort and encourage those of us, including my humble self, that are yet to embrace daily masses.

“When he came back from mass, I jokingly told him he was looking relaxed when every other person was almost mourning. He replied: “Val nothing has changed about my belief that God’s will is supreme at all times,” he always speaks like a God-intoxicated man, which is worthy of imitation.”

For a better society
