Speaking to Journalists earlier, Gov. Nasir El-Rufai expressed concern over the low turnout of voters during the election.

The governor after casting his vote at the Ungwan Sarkin polling unit 001 in the Kaduna North LGA,  attributed the low turnout to the late arrival of some of the election materials.

El-Rufai, however, said there was a vast improvement in the election process compared to that of 2018.

He said the electronic voting machine makes it impossible for voters to indulge in multiple voting.

He said the APC does not have to win everywhere, adding that the party has worked for the people of the state.

“You activate the voting machine with your voter’s card once you have been accredited. The whole process takes less than 15 seconds; it’s very quick and efficient and you see your ballot paper being printed,” he said.

“As I said several times, we are not going to behave like other parties or other state governments, we will allow the people of Kaduna State to elect who they want.

“We don’t believe in cheating or rigging elections but also we don’t want other parties to cheat us and that was why encouraged the Kaduna State Independent Electoral Commission to come up with a fool-proof voting process.”
