ONLY REASON WHY ELECTIONS CAN BE POSTPONED BY LAW

There have been many agents of political parties, candidates and persons calling for the postponement of the General elections billed to hold on 14th February,2015. 

Though this call has been received with different opinions and view,INEC has stated that it will hold the elections as scheduled. 

Many of our readers have been wondering  on what grounds INEC can postpone the elections and this question has necessaited this post. 

Section 26(1) of the Electoral Act provides that- Where a date has been appointed for the holding of an election,and there is reason to believe that a serious breach of the peace is likely to occur if the election is proceeded with on that date or it is impossible to confuct the elections as a result of natural disasters or other emergencies. 

Having read the above,do u think there is a valid reason to call off the Presidential and Governror elections?

  1. Although the elections have been postponed, would add section 135 (3) of the constitution. Also, in view of the advisory powers of the Council of State who gave the go ahead for the elections in accordance with section 6, part 1 of the 3rd schedule to the Constitution; this postponement is illegal, unconstitutional and unlawful. I have not seen the valid reason to postpone the election in all of Nigeria. (Apologies if I went off the question)
