Nigeria Decides: I am not happy to see voters' apathy among Kaduna residents- El-Rufai

Mallam Nasir Nasir El-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State, reportedly voiced worry about voter apathy in the state, particularly among women, according to Daily Post News reports.

The Governor reportedly encouraged the electorate to turn out in large numbers to exercise their right to vote for their leaders as he waited to cast his votes, according to The Daily Post News.

El-Rufai, who waited hours in line to cast his ballot, reportedly revealed this at PU 024 Ward 7, Unguwar Sarki, Kaduna, claiming there have been instances of Biomodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) failure in the state.

In a statement, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai said: "I am disappointed to see voters' apathy among Kaduna residents." This is because we have repeatedly told them that it is important to turn out on election day and cast their vote for the candidate of their choosing because it is their civic duty. Callous politicians use political apathy as a tool to manipulate elections to produce the outcome they selfishly want."
