2

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has decided to postpone the February 14 presidential and legislative elections by six weeks.

According to an Associated Press (AP) report, this development is to enable multinational force time, to secure Boko Haram threatened areas in North East Nigeria.

An official told AP that millions would have been disenfranchised if the polls were conducted as initially planned, while the insurgents continue to control some cities in that region, with over 1.5 million people displaced from their homes.

More Military strikes are expected in the coming days, even as troops from Chad and Nigeria have forced the extremists from a dozen towns in recent days.
