2023 Election: Reactions as INEC postpones governorship election by one week

Following the just concluded 2023 general election that saw INEC announce APC Presidential Candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the winner after defeating close opponents Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and Peter Obi of the Labour Party to become the next president of Nigeria.

Also it should be recalled that both Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar rejected Tinubu's victory, querying the election process and the performance of the INEC, thereby resulting in going to court.

However, the Independent National Electoral Commission has postponed the governorship and state assembly elections scheduled to hold on March 11 by one week.

The elections will now hold on March 18, 2023.

A Residential Electoral Commissioner who spoke to our correspondent on the condition of anonymity confirmed the decision.

Check out how Nigerians reacted to this in the screenshots below.
