Audu Maikori, founder and group CEO of the Chocolate City Entertainment, says a friend of his may still be alive today, if only he knew that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) would postpone the February 16 election.

Early Saturday morning, Mahmood Yakubu, INEC chairman informed the media and Nigerians in general, that it was no longer feasible to go on with the election as planned.

Maikori said his friend died on his way to his hometown, where he was travelling to cast his vote.

“I just lost a dear friend yesterday. He died on his way to his hometown in Akwanga – he was heading to perform his civic duty,” Maikori tweeted.

“If he only knew that INEC would cancel the elections, he wouldn’t have travelled. Who knows He might still have been alive today. #RIPJerry”.

Some Nigerians from all over the world flew into the country to participate in the country’s historic elections on Saturday, only for the poll to be postponed nationwide.

Various experiences have been shared on social media, detailing the harrowing experiences Nigerians, who will now pay heavy costs for INEC’s decisions.

Another Nigeria, Emeka Ezeanyagu, share his wedding invitation, which he would be forced to move due to the new election date.

Many other Nigerians across the nation have such unplanned cost incurred, due to INEC’s decision.
