Don't Despair Over Polls Postponement - Sen Adeola Tells Supporters, Nigerians 

Senator Solomon Adeola has advised his massive supporters not to despair or be demoralised over the regrettable postponement of the Presidential and National Assembly elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) earlier scheduled for today.

Adeola who is the Chairman of Senate Committee on Local Content also called on the rest of Nigerians, not to lose hope in the nation's  electoral process as challenges such as the ones being faced by INEC often trail nascent democracy in search of credible and qualitative election.

The All Progressives Congress(APC) Senator for Lagos West, who was reacting the to the postponement after a grueling campaign tour across 10 Local Governments and 18 LCDAs of the Lagos West district, expressed optimism that he would still win Lagos West Senatorial seat.

The Senator who gave the advice on Saturday morning, in a statement by Chief Kayode Odunaro, Adeola's Media Adviser, added that delay is not denial to eventual victory just a week away.

“I am disappointed at the last minutes postponement of this election that by God’s grace I was coasting home to win. But in all things, we give thanks to Almighty God and pray for our country to perfects its electoral system to avoid glitches such as this. 

"I have been a victim of this kind of postponement twice in the past in 2011 and 2015 and on each occasion I came out victorious for House of Representatives seat and Senate respectively. This election will not be different as “victoria ascerta” next Saturday,” Senator Adeola stated.

Senator Adeola restated his call for the electorate to vote for APC and its candidates in all election as it is inconceivable and would be disastrous for Nigeria to return PDP back to power under any guise after 16 years of mis-governance and looting of nation resources.
