The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari has finally responded to the postponement of the 2015 General Elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Buhari urged his supporters to remain calm and desist from violence saying that “change may be postponed, but it cannot be denied.”

"Though what has happened is highly provocative, I strongly appeal to all Nigerians to remain calm and desist from violence. We must not fall into this obvious trap,” Buhari said via Twitter on Sunday, February 8.

“I want to assure all Nigerians that the All Progressives Congress will not abandon its commitment to change...Change may be postponed, but it cannot be denied,” he concluded.

INEC Chairman, Attahiru Jega announced the postponement on Saturday, 7, citing security concerns.

The APC has responded to the shift calling it “provocative” while party leader, Bola Tinubu stated that Nigeria’s democracy is now at the mercy of the gun.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) however commended the postponement calling it a courageous act on INEC’s part.
