Anambra Election: Agents Tackle Voter Apathy With House-To-House Mobilisation

Voter apathy has made agents go from house to house as well as call family members and friends on phone to come out and vote.

This was noticed at the Nkwo Market Square in Akwa Central area where some polling boots were empty while others had few voters on the queue while waiting to cast their votes.An All Progressives Grand Alliance agent, Joseph Nnake, said there is apathy because of fear. He said that they had to go to the residence of voters to urge them to come out and exercise their civic rights.He said the low turnout may work against the success of the election
He, however, noted that the election is peaceful as everyone involved is doing their jobs to deliver a free, fair and credible election.
