ADEKUNLE OWOLABI ON POSTPONED NIGERIA PRESIDENTIAL POLLS

Nigerians have hit out in frustration and anger at election officials.
This after a last-minute delay to voting, just as they were preparing to cast their ballots. Many people were taken unawares by the overnight announcement. Many only found out when they reached empty and unstaffed polling stations.
The Independent National Electoral Commission says the week-long postponement of the elections is due to delays in transporting electoral material.

SABC News chatted to Adekunle Owolabi, a Nigerian Journalist, and Developer based in Johannesburg, South Africa about the postponement of the Nigeria presidential polls.
