As results of the governorship and state house of assembly polls are being collated across the country, the European Union says no fewer than 21 persons have died from electoral violence.
The European Union Chief Observer, Mister Barry Andrews, disclosed this on Monday while briefing journalists on their findings in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
Barry stated that there was massive voter apathy, mainly because voters’ expectations during the presidential election were not met. The European Union Observer also explained that there were records of vote buying in several parts of the country.
He also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for an improvement in its logistics arrangements, adding that the electoral body did better in the conduct of the polls through the deployment and usage of technology.
