    The postponement of elections in Nigeria has been a major inconvenience for millions of voters, especially those who have taken long and expensive journeys to cast their ballots.

    On Saturday, the election commission decided to delay polls for a week, saying it needs more time to ensure a free and fair vote.

    But there are concerns that the decision could lead to a low turnout.
