At the Bulabulin Ngarnam polling unit (005), electoral personnel were idle as election materials could not be utilised, because there were no voters on queue, two hours after polling centres were opened.
It took the intervention of Governor Kashim Shettima at his Kukawa polling unit, Lamisula-Jabbamari, who embarked on “house to house” mobilisation of voters at
Shettima alongside the gubernatorial candidate, Prof. Babagana Umara travelled to Mafa town, for the latter to cast his vote.
