The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC was in a meeting with political parties, and their leadership after suddenly postponing the presidential election.
The chairman of INEC, Prof Mahmood Yakubu in his addressed ‘regretted the inconveniences’, the postponement would have caused political parties and Nigerians.
However, Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole lambasted the INEC chairman for postponing the elections at 2:30am, when ‘decent Nigerians had gone to bed,’ demanding an apology.
Nigerians following the programme, hailed the former Edo state governor, for speaking outrightly against the embarrassing postponement – and for also demanding that Mahmood apologizes.

For the first time in a looooong time I heard COMRADE Adams Oshiomole speak up straight to the INEC chairman and asked critical questions while most of the other party spokespersons were busy passing commendations.
The reaction of Mahmood Yakub is priceless.

Isn’t Adams Oshiomole the smartest man in that room?
The rest people are just petting the INEC chairman!

Nearly all the Political Parties supported the postponement until Adams Oshiomole rose up to describe the action as unacceptable and irresponsible, he asked the INEC Chairman to apologise to all Nigerians….
