Security has been tightened in a number of Nigerian cities ahead of an announcement by the electoral commission on whether to postpone next Saturday's general election. Security officials have said they won't be able to guarantee public safety if the poll goes ahead as planned because of the threat posed by Boko Haram Islamists. Chekwas Okorie, an opposition presidential candidate, accused the governing party of interference.

"Our supporters will lose confidence in the process because definitely they would believe that the shift is a result of the pressure that come from the party that is scared of defeat. And so if the party has its win to shift the goal balls towards the end of the match, then the party will have its win in many political results."

candidate n. 候选人,候补者;应试者

interference n. 干扰,冲突;干涉


尼日利亚选举委员会将就是否会推迟下周六举行的大选发表声明,在此之前,尼日利亚多个城市加强安全戒备。安保官员已经表示如果大选照常举行,他们将无法保证公共安全,因为博科圣地伊斯兰主义者已经表示会破坏大选。一位在野的总统候选人,采克沃斯•奥克奥利,指责执政党干预大选。

“我们的支持者将在这个过程中失去信心,因为很明显,他们将会认为推迟大选是害怕失败的执政党施压而导致的结果。因此如果执政党成功地将大选推迟到三月底,那么他们将会在许多政治因素中占优。”
