Nigeria Decides: Low Turn Out In Ibadan


There was generally low turn out of voters in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, for the April 11 governorship and state House of Assembly elections..

The turn out in most of the polling stations in the ancient city was lower that what was witnessed two weeks ago during the Presidential and National Assembly polls.

WESTERN POST correspondent who monitored the governorship and state legislative polls across the polling stations in the town could not immediately get an explanation for the low turn out.

The state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Ambassador Rufus Akeju, could not be reached when our correspondent put a call through to his phone,

But some voters said many did not come out for fear of violence. The election was widely framed to be a straight fight between Governor Abiola Ajimobi of the All Progressives Congress and Accord party candidate and former governor of the state, Senator Rashidi Ladoja.

Governor Ajimobi and his wife, Florence, voted at Oluyole Estate while Ladoja voted at Ondo Street in Bodija.
