The presidential candidate of People’s Democracy Party, PDP,and former vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has called on Nigerians to be patient and be ready to vote.

The PDP candidate said he was shocked and surprised that elections would be postponed few hours to the elections.

Atiku made the remark at his Yola residence added that he is not too worried that sensitive materials have been deployed already, “As long as they are in safe hands there should be no problem.

“I am heading to Abuja for an emergency meeting of our party stakeholders then we will respond.”

Adamawa state chairman of the PDP, Tahir Shehu has slammed the INEC for shifting the elections saying they were not surprised that INEC could cite logistics reasons because they had raised objections over INEC’s partnership with Nigerian Union of Road Transport workers (NURTW.)

Tahir said, “What they have done has cast a dark shadow on the country.

“We are calling on security agencies and the regulatory body not to ignite crisis in the country.

“Nigerians everywhere in the country will not take any kind of manipulation.

“We call on Nigerians come out and defend their votes, one thousand people can organise rigging but two people can foil it.”

Speaking on the logistics arrangement in the state he said, “INEC gave us only 200 tags for our party’s agent when we needed about 4000 because we have about 4000 voting points in Adamawa and more than 2609 polling units.

“The APC in the state submitted names of only agents of seven local governments while we submitted for all the local governments yet we are the ones without the tags.

“We had earlier warned about INEC’S partnership with NURTW who openly endorsed the sitting president.

“We are calling on the security agencies to desist from meddling in elections.

“APC has already seen the handwriting on the wall and Atiku is what Nigerians want right now.”
