JOINT STATEMENT ON THE POSTPONEMENT OF THE 2019 ELECTIONS IN NIGERIA
We, the Heads of the international election observation missions and the United
Nations present in Nigeria, have taken note of the decision of the Independent
National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the 2019 general elections due
to logistical and operational challenges.
While we note that this decision has caused disappointment for many, we call on all Nigerians to continue to remain calm and supportive of the electoral process as
INEC works to implement its new timeline.
We urge INEC to use this time to finalise all preparations and ensure that the new
election dates are strictly adhered to. We encourage INEC to provide regular
updates and information to the public on its preparations in the coming days and
weeks to enhance confidence and trust in the process.
As we continue to closely observe preparations across the country, we stand in solidarity with the people of Nigeria in their desire for credible and peaceful
elections.

If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
