The chairman of Nigeria's Independent National Electoral Commission, Attahiru Jega, has stated that he expected Monday, April 4, 2011, to be declared a public holiday or at least a non-working day.

The aforementioned statement followed last night's last-minute postponement of today's elections to next Monday.

A few states had declared a public holiday yesterday (2011-03-30), "to enable prospective voters that may need to travel for the purpose of casting their votes to do so".
