“In Kano and some of these states in the North, majority of voters were under-aged. Voting also took place in the night and you know that in the night, rigging can take place. We have compiled our reports from Kano state chapter”, he said.
The PDP deputy chairman further declared that the conducts of the election in the affected states were characterized by underage voting, mid-night voting,voting to rig and insurgency attacks on voters in connivance with the officials of INEC.
