After waking up to the rather abrupt news of election postponement last weekend, Nigerians are taking no chances and are staying awake for fear of another postponement
The atmosphere is charged, as the presidential election is expected to commence in a few hours and Nigerians are geared to cast their votes and choose who would lead them in another four years.
The hilarious thing about this air of anticipation is the fact most Nigerians are staying awake for fear of another election postponement by INEC.
The need to keep vigil is not far-fetched as last weekend, Feb. 16, 2019, INEC abruptly postponed the Presidential elections at 2am in the morning, without giving citizens prior notice.
Thus Nigerians have taken it upon themselves to closely monitor the hours to the presidential election, for fear that sleeping may cause another postponement.
Furthermore Social media is abuzz with posts about this vigil as all eyes closely monitor INEC in case of any surprises. The compulsion to stay awake, is testament of a deep distrust in the electoral commission by citizens.
Happenings gathered the most hilarious social media posts documenting this all important election vigil.
