Lagos – Senator Babafemi Ojudu has reportedly alleged that President Goodluck Jonathan is planning to extend his tenure for a two-year term.

According to The Nation, Ojudu said there would be no elections this year, following the postponement of the polls to a later date.

"If anybody thinks there will be election on March 28 and April 11, he is deceiving himself. They are just deceiving us. The body language of some top leaders is that the Federal Government is not willing to organise any election now," Ojudu was quoted as saying.

The Independent National Electoral Committee (INEC) made the announcement over the weekend that the country's general elections had been delayed for six years over national concerns.
