May 29th Handover Date Remains Sacrosanct - President Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan has assured Nigerians that the May twenty-nine handover date remains sacrosanct as it is the terminal date of his first term in office.

The president in a statement by his spokesman, Reuben Abati, said the adjustment by the INEC should be accepted by Nigerians as necessary decision to ensure that Nigerians are not disenfranchised.

He called for support from the international community and civil society organisations, adding that this is not a time to trade blames or make statements that may overheat the polity, but a time to show understanding and support the electoral commission to conduct successful elections.
