INEC had shifted the Presidential and National Assembly elections from February 16 to February 23 and the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections from March 2 to March 9.
However, the opposition candidate, former vice president Atiku Abubakar, later accused President Muhammadu Buhari of instigating the delay to "disenfranchise" the electorate. "Also, the Interest of over 200 Million people is more Important than someone to be the President of Nigeria".
