Chairman of Nigeria's electoral body announced on Saturday that the country's presidential election was postponed until Feb. 23 as scheduled proceeding of the vote was not "feasible."

Mahmood Yakubu, chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), said this at a press conference just a few hours before the commencement of the poll.

"Following a careful review of the implementation of its logistics and operational plan and the determination to conduct free, fair, and credible elections, the Commission came to the conclusion that proceeding with the elections as scheduled is no longer feasible," Yakubu said.
