Nigerians are asking the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) to come out and address the nation on the way forward to the presidential and National Assembly election billed for Saturday (Today).
INEC summoned an emergency meeting on the eve of the election which has sparked wide rumours of postponement of the exercise.
The emergency meeting called by INEC has been ongoing for several hours while the rumour that the Commission is planning to postpone the election keeps gathering momentum.
Frustrated by the failure of the electoral body to react to the growing rumours, many Nigerians are voicing their concern on social media and calling on INEC to come out and make things clear.
Here are some of the reactions:
My humble advice to INEC CHAIRMAN is to respond to these satanic rumours urgently…

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Four years plan of INEC wasted just like that. Nigeria is a joke. #BuhariMustGo

If you don’t hear anything from inec then don’t believe in the rumours

A very trusted source is telling me now that elections will not be postponed. He says the voting might start late in some places but will not be postponed. In the midst of all these we await INEC to clarify. Stay with me, no sleep yet.

Ayisha, this is beyond irresponsible. How can @inecnigeria Chairman be holed up somewhere in some useless meeting in a situation like this? I can picture kolanuts, bitter kola, Tomtom, bottled water, & men in a relaxed seminar room at INEC chatting, claiming emergency meeting.

It is on record that Buhari did not destroy our hard earned democracy alone, INEC, Police and the Judiciary helped him. @OfficialPDPNig should never accept staggered elections #BuhariWillGo #BuhariNeverAgain #Buhari #AtikuOurPresident
