Nigeria Election 2019: ‘something is missing somewhere’ – Islamic Cleric

Mallam Shamuna Uztaz Jibri who has been accurate with election predictions over the years says spiritually there is more into Nigeria’s election.

The soothsayer said he refused to predict on the elections because “something is missing somewhere which needed to be added before getting accurate information about the election.”

“Because of my global spiritual track record, I have to be certain and accurate before I come out with an information. Is not guess work but is a gift work. Once again to those who are major shareholders of surprise about Nigeria election been postponed should continue to be surprise,” he told Peacefmonline.com.

So why was voting postponed?

The electoral Chief, Mr Yakubu, said: "Our decision was entirely taken by the Commission. It has nothing to do with security, nothing to do with political influence."

He said the delay was down to problems with the transportation of electoral materials - ballot papers and results sheets - to some parts of the country.

He had earlier said the decision was made because of a "determination to conduct free, fair and credible elections".

In the past two weeks several Inec offices have been set alight, with thousands of electronic smart card readers and voter cards destroyed.

Nigeria has seen violence in the run-up to the elections and on Saturday 11 people were killed in an attack by Boko Haram militants south of Maiduguri.

President Muhammadu Buhari said he was "deeply disappointed" but urged people to refrain from "civil disorder".

Main rival Atiku Abubakar called for patience but accused the administration of "anti-democratic acts".
