Lagos - Award wining author Chimamanda Adichie has said that President Goodluck Jonathan is terrified of losing the election.
The writer said this in a recent article where she criticized the recent postponement of Nigeria’s general elections.
In an article titled “Democracy, Deferred”, she wrote that the poll shift is a flailing act of desperation from an incumbent terrified of losing.
The postponement of the elections was announced on Saturday, February 7, by the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Attahiru Jega.
The source added that the poll shift would allow extra time for a newly constituted multinational force to secure the North-East which is currently being plagued by Boko Haram attacks.
It would also enable the commission continue distribution of Permanent Voters Cards (PVC) to citizens to prevent mass disenfranchisement.
The elections has been moved to March 28 and April 11.
