London - Nigeria's national security adviser said on Thursday he had advised the country's electoral commission to consider delaying elections planned for next month so that it has time to distribute voters' cards to all those entitled to them.
Sambo Dasuki said during a talk at a London think-tank that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had 30 million cards left to distribute and had only managed to distribute 30 million in the past year.
"What sense does it make to vote three months early when there are 30 million cards still with INEC? That's my position," Dasuki said.
