El-Rufai, who addressed journalists at the polling unit, decried the low turnout of voters during the exercise.

He said: “What worries me is that I noticed that people didn’t turn out much.

“I know that in many polling units, there were challenges with the Electronic Voting Machines.

“Some machines were taken to the wrong polling units, so they had to be changed. So people who came out early to vote, thought that the voting had not started.”
