Yakubu said: “Myself and other commissioners have been sleeping at the Abuja airport in the last three days, ensuring that all materials are dispatched to states across the federation. Up till 2am, we were still confidence of our preparation and still determined to carry out the exercise.”

“As I have said earlier, we regret over the postponement”, he said.
