Overview

Nigeria is to hold a delayed presidential election on Saturday, 23 February, 2019 after the initial vote was rescheduled five hours before polls were due to have opened.

The last-minute cancellation inconvenienced thousands of Nigerians who had travelled a long way to cast their votes and has cost the economy an estimated $1.5bn (£1.15bn), according to the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) stated a variety of reasons for the delay, including attempted sabotage and logistical issues including weather and problems with counting and delivering the ballot papers.
