Nigerians Turned Out En Masse For Rallies, But Refused To Turn Out En Masse For Election- Shehu Sani

The former senator that represented the good people of Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone, Senator Shehu Sani, has dragged Nigerians, claiming that they turned out en masse to participate in political rallies, but refused to turn out en masse on the election day.

Speaking further, the former lawmaker claimed that the reason for this low turn out of voters was due to unavailability of cash to share to the electorates.

Senator Shehu Sani made this disclosure in a tweet he made on his verified twitter handle. He wrote: "Nigerians turned out en masse for political rallies, but refused to turn out en masse for election, because of the unavailability of cash to share to the electorate."

Since democratic rule returned to Nigeria in 1999, the just concluded 2023 Presidential election was said to be the election with the lowest number of voter turnout. Out of 93.5 million registered voters, only 25.3 million people came out to cast their votes, averaging about 27 percent, according to Punch Newspaper.

Many people claimed that the number of people who came out during the just concluded presidential election were more than this, but it was reduced, due to irregularities that marred the just concluded presidential election.
