Election postponement: Business activities decline in Ibadan

Many shops, markets, including PalmsMall (Shoprite) in Ibadan stayed locked while roads were deserted on Saturday in spite of the postponement of the elections.

22, 643 candidates to contest 1, 504 posts in 2019 general elections

The Challenge Lagos-Ibadan transport park was not busy as the park was deserted.

Some government street sweepers on Ibadan-Challenge road were seen carrying out their normal duties.

One of them, Mrs Bose Raufu told NAN that they came to work when they got the news of the postponement of the elections.

We had no option than to resume at work, she said.

Also speaking, a father, Mr Taiwo Olusola told NAN that there might be low turnout of people next week for the elections.

With this prompt election postponement, many will not be willing to come out again to vote next week, he said.

Mrs Florence Uzoma was unhappy over the development,

Just see how people travelled from far and wide to their polling stations with all the risks, only for the election to be postponed just few hours to it, she said.

Mr Echezona Chukwu said: I just hope there will not be another postponement next week.

Lets all be praying for our country. All we need at this time is Gods mercy.
