If news bits filtering onto our news desk is anything to go by, then the Forthcoming General Elections, which have already been postponed once, may be moved forward yet again as a result of fuel scarcity.
This was made known in a press release this morning by INEC Supremo, Alh. Attahiru Jega, who insisted that the current shortage of petroleum products would hamper workforce and logistics for the elections.
“Fellow Nigerians, I’m afraid the current shortage of petroleum products may force the hand of INEC to postpone elections yet again. We need fuel more than you do. If we can’t fuel our vehicles, we can’t move voting materials to different locations. If we can’t have voting materials on site, how do you vote? So please prepare for the worst”.
He also insisted that whatever little fuel is left in the country will only be sold to people with PVCs.
The APC and PDP are yet to comment.
