The House of Representatives, on Saturday, described the postponement of the elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as unfortunate.
Naija News had reported that the Chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, postponed the elections by one week.
The commission blamed the postponement on logistics challenges that could affect the process negatively.
Speaking to NAN, the Spokesman of the House of Reps, Abdulrazak Namdas (APC-Adamawa), expressed hope that the postponement would be a blessing in disguise for the country.
“It is unfortunate that it has happened like this, we hope that the outcome of the postponement will be the best for Nigerians.
“I hope that it is a blessing in disguise, it is better to have an election that is credible than to rush and do the elections with issues,” he said.
