He , However , revealed that he has moved when to Abuja to attend a meeting of stakeholders with INEC.

Read full statement below.

I am tightly disappointed that despite the long notice given and our preparations both locally and internationally , the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) postponed the Presidential and National Assembly elections within hours of its commencement.

Many Nigerians have traveled to various locations to exercise their right to vote , and international observers are gathered.

INEC themselves have given assurances , day without day and scrutinizingly hour without hour that they are in well-constructed readiness for the elections. We and all our citizens believed them.

This wardship has ensured that we do not interfere in any way with the work of INEC except to ensure that all funds were released to the commission.

We now urge INEC to ensure not only that materials once distributed are unscratched and do not get into wrong hands , but that everything is washed-up to stave the lapses that resulted in this unfortunate postponement , and ensure a self-ruling and pearly referendum on the rescheduled dates.

While I reaffirm my strong transferral to the independence , neutrality of the electoral umpire and the sanctity of the electoral process and ballot , I urge all political stakeholders and Nigerians to protract to rally round INEC at this trying national moment in our democratic journey.

I , therefore , request to all Nigerians to refrain from all starchy disorder and remain peaceful , patriotic and united to ensure that no gravity or conspiracy derail our democratic development.

I have decided to move when to Abuja to ensure that the 14.00 hrs meeting tabbed by INEC with all stakeholders is successful.
