INEC, you always have four years to prepare for Corper’s being used for elections. All the money gotten for elections, why can’t you provide suitable accommodation for a night? Why do you treat graduates like this? Is it a crime to serve Nigeria?

Nigerians- “they” don’t care about you & I . It’s so so obvious . If they like , they should postpone it again. We need to rise up and not let them win .

While we are all frustrated, please spare a thought for people who are most affected by the postponement… like our corpers who had to spend the night in terrible sleeping conditions, people who had weddings or other milestone occasions planned, etc. May God help us all.
