A national Commissioner with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in-charge of South East, Dame Gladys Nnenwafor, has decried the low voter turn out at the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Area Council elections conducted Saturday, saying that the turn out was below forty per cent.

Nnenwafor, who is the INEC Commissioner for Imo, Enugu and Ebonyi states, during an interactive session after supervising the FCT elections, attributed illiteracy and lack of voter education to the unimpressive turn out witnessed in the polls.

She said, “The overall impression of the exercise is that the turn out is very low, even below 40 percent. I wouldn’t say lack of awareness. Everybody was aware of the FCT elections.”

According to her, the solutions to such apathy witnessed in the elections  were voter education and creation of awareness especially at the grassroots level.
