Brides-to-be, make-up artists and others associated with weddings have all been impacted by the decision of INEC to shift the presidential and National Assembly elections to next week, New Telegraph wrote, adding that a journalist with Champion newspaper, Kelechi Uzomah is devastated by the postponement as the election date now falls on his wedding day.
“This is frustrating; I will have to start by printing another wedding card and going through the same process again. I started working on my guest list last year and sent out my invitations by the first and second week of January. Just yesterday I sent out a bulk sms to my guests reminding them that the wedding is just a week away on Saturday 23, February, 2019.
“So it came as a rude shock to me this morning when I learnt the Presidential and National Assembly elections have been shifted to next Saturday. And you know women, my wife is thoroughly devastated,” he told the paper.
