The Chairman of Anambra State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] Campaign Council, Mr. Oseloka H. Obaze has lamented what he termed ‘shifting of goalpost’ by the Independent national Electoral Commission [INEC].

In a short statement he made available to ElombahNews on Saturday, Mr. Obaze wondered why INEC will postpone the election at the last moment.

He said: “INEC had four years to prepare for the 2019 elections in keeping with its statutory remit.

“It’s last minute postponement of the elections, despite repeated assurances, lends credence to our worries that INEC was never prepared to conduct a free, fair and sufficiently credible elections.

“As the umpire, INEC must understand that this postponement comes at a great cost to Nigerians.

“Nigerians are ever ready to make their voices heard through the ballot.

“Hence, this shifting of the goalpost in the middle of the game undermines our democracy and won’t stop Nigerians from exercising their universal suffrage and passing their verdict.

“We join our candidate in stating that ‘you can postpone an election, but you cannot postpone destiny’”, he concluded.
