Nigerian prelate disappointed by postponement of elections

April 05, 2011

Cardinal Anthony Okogie of Lagos, Nigeria, has expressed disappointment with the decision to postpone elections, but urged his people to wait patiently for a new ballot.

In a message to the national election commission, Cardinal Okogie said that the postponement of elections—which the commission attributed to logistical problems in preparing the ballots—would be understandable only if the problems are promptly solved and the elections held. Otherwise, he said, the credibility of the electoral commission will be badly damaged in public eyes.
