"Only days before the first of Nigeria's three April elections, the man in charge of the polls assured the oil-rich nation it was 'well-prepared and well-positioned' to avoid the missteps of the young democracy's past. Now, Independent National Electoral Commission chairman Attahiru Jega faces increasing criticism as he announced Sunday a week postponement of all elections after his agency failed to bring ballot papers and result sheets to the past weekend's scheduled poll."
