Pastor Emeka Okoli, a voter at Aroma Awka 1 told NAN that the poor turnout was due to the poor handling of the Feb. 25 presidential and national assembly elections.

“As you can see many people are not here now, by this time during the last election, more than 150 people were already here.

“For people to show up in their numbers in future elections, INEC must make sure they stick to the rules”, he said.
