James, who is also the Coordinator, South South Transition Monitoring Group for the general election, said this while addressing journalists on Saturday in Yenagoa.
“Nigerians should not blame INEC because this is not the first time election is being postponed.
“Though, the news came as a surprise to us, since it has been done already, we need to work together to see that democracy thrives in Nigeria,” he said.
