Election Postponement: Nigerians to celebrate Val.

Nigeria we hail thee...election now to hold on 28 March and 11th April.

February 14 Presidential and legislative elections has been postponed for six weeks to give a new multinational force time to secure northeastern areas under the sway of Boko Haram.

Millions could be disenfranchised if the voting went ahead while the Islamic extremists hold a large swath of the northeast and commit mayhem that has driven 1.5 million people from their homes.

A postponement also will give electoral officials more time to deliver some 30 million voter cards.
