Tracereporters –Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-rufai, has expressed concerned over low turnout of voters in the state, especially among women.
The Governor, while waiting to cast his vote, urged the electorate to come out en-mass to exercise their right by voting candidates of their choice.
El-rufai who waited for hours on the queue to cast his vote disclosed this at PU 024 ward 7 Unguwar Sarki, Kaduna, where he said that there are reported cases of Biomodel Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) in the state.
While speaking, the Governor however, explained that a BVAS machine was snatched at the Southern part of the state, just as he also said that two other incidents happened within the state.
El-rufai who commended electoral umpire for adequate preparations, added that police are investigating the incidents.
Though, the Governor didn’t mention the locations of the other incidents.
El-Rufai added, “Last night, the Rice Mill was attacked by people suspected to be PDP thugs. Police is investigating. This morning, we got a report of one incident in Southern Kaduna where BVAS, ballot boxes were snatched and in Zuba where there was another incident of two ballot boxes being snatched.
“Of course, these are no incidents at all. Whether you snatch ballot boxes or BVAS or not, it doesn’t matter these days. The technology has gone beyond the primitive rigging system that political actors are used to.”
