NLC wants FG to declare public holiday after postponement of election

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has said it was shocked by the last minute postponement of the Presidential and National Assembly elections earlier scheduled to hold on Saturday, February 16, 2019.

The labour union advised the federal government to declare two or three-day public holiday to enable workers travel to cast their votes following voter apathy that may have greeted the postponement of the elections, The Nation reports

The president of the NLC, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, in a statement said many Nigerians would not have been able to vote due to logistics problems if the election held.

"However, given the fact that had the election taken place, a huge number of Nigerians would have been disenfranchised on account of gross and wide-spread logistic deficit, the postponement, as painful as it is, is a lesser evil of the two."
