Kogi supplementary poll: Low turnout in Odo-Ape, Ayetoro-Kiri, Ayetoro-Gbede
A low turnout of voters was recorded in Odo-Ape, Ayetoro-Kiri and Ayetoro-Gbede areas in Saturday’s governorship supplementary election in Kogi, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
Our Correspondent reports that voting had already commenced in the areas but with poor participation of the electorate.
Mrs Kehinde Ishola, a trader said she would rather go about her normal business than to vote in the election.
“By the end of the exercise today, INEC would know they had erred by declaring the Nov. 21 election inconclusive,’’ Ishola said.
According to her, the supplementary election would not change anything “ and this is why you are seeing this low turnout of voters”.
An All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain from Ijumu Local Government Area, Mr Abubakar Mumuni, told NAN that he, alongside others, had been visiting houses to plead with people to come out and vote.
Mr Henry Chikwado, said the supplementary election was a good idea “and by tomorrow, every party would know its fate’’.
