Recall that Adamu lost his polling unit, ward, and local government to Labour Party’s Peter Obi in the Presidential election of February 25.

Abdullahi Adamu had earlier decried the low turnout of voters for the governorship and house of assembly elections in his polling unit.

Speaking with journalists after casting his vote at polling unit 010, Agwan Rimi ward in Keffi, Nasarawa state, the APC leader said he was dismayed by the low turnout of voters at the polling unit.

Adamu said he had also seen news reports about turnout in other polling units in the area.

He, however, expressed the hope that before the process is over, more voters would come out.

“I just got in here and I do not know how the attendance was before now but it would appear many of the electorates in this particular polling unit did not come out,” NAN quoted him as saying.

“I expected the turnout to be more than this but it is not over until it is over.

“I have not gone round yet and it’s just about past midday. I do hope that the turnout will be more encouraging in this particular polling unit and other places where turnout has been low.”
