The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has given reasons for low turnout in Lagos and other states in Nigeria.
He spoke after casting his vote at unit 047, ward 3, Ikeja local government area of Lagos where the APC leader usually votes.
He said voters’ apathy is universal, seeking that politicians need to restrategise.
He said: “INEC should extend the time of voting to accommodate those who are still coming to vote for their candidate.
This is a very unusual year of election, characterised by low turnout. It is universal, the whole world is experiencing apathy.
Politicians need to develop a means to get people encouraged. Our youths need to be aware and take democracy very seriously because it affects their lives.”
