Saraki expresses disappointment over low voters’ turn-out
Senate President Bukola Saraki has expressed disappointment over low turn-out of voters in the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections in the state.
The senate president, while casting his vote on Saturday at his Ajikobi ward, Opobiyi polling units 005, said the turn-out was not impressive compared to the presidential and national assembly elections on Feb. 23.
Bukola, who arrived at his polling unit at exactly 11:08 a.m. in a blue caftan, with a cap to match, said the turn-out was low.
He said he had been inundated with too many reports of military deployment in the state which could be the reason for the low turn-out.
Commenting on card readers, the senate president said he had not received any reports of malfunctioning of the gadgets.
He added that since the independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had insisted on the use of card readers, there must have been an improvement.
