Why Nigerians Refused To Come Out To Vote
The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has said the ongoing governorship and state assembly elections recorded low turnout because of the outcome of the February 25 presidential election.
Obi said the results of the presidential election did not reflect the people’s wish, hence the voter apathy recorded in the ongoing elections.
He said in a chat with reporters at his Amatutu polling unit in Agulu, Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State on Saturday.
He said, “The electorates were discouraged to come to vote because of what happened in the last poll that did not reflect the people’s wish.”
