The senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Lagos Central, Sunbo Onitiri has  appealed to Lagosians to be calm in view of the postponement of the presidential election.   

In a statement issued in Lagos yesterday, Sunbo Onitiri said the postponement was very shocking and disappointing.

” To say the least it is a national disgrace. It is a collosal waste of money and resources. Lagosians have lost two days to the postponement”.  

He said the sensitive election materials issued out should be secured and not be tampered with so as to make the election credible. 

“I therefore urge INEC to ensure that the elections hold on the 23rd Feb unfailingly. The elections should  be free, fair and credible. The National embarrassment  should not repeat itself”. 

The PDP senatorial candidate also implored Lagosians to troop out on the 23rd Feb and peacefully exercise their duty by voting for credible, competent and capable leaders that will take Nigeria to the promised land and eliminate poverty, sufferings  and disease from the country. 

“Please vote wisely, vote rightly and vote your conscience”.

Onitiri also implored INEC to ensure that the elections are free, fair and credible. 

” INEC should maintain neutrality in this election  and show the whole world that it’s an unbiased  umpire.   Our security  agencies should not take side with any candidate in the interest of peace in Nigeria”.  

Onitiri advised security agencies not to harass or intimidate voters during the elections.
