He said he had been inundated with too many reports of military deployment in the state which could be the reason for the low turn-out.

Commenting on card readers, the senate president said he had not received any reports of malfunctioning of the gadgets.

He added that since the independent National Electoral Commission, INEC had insisted on the use of card readers, there must have been an improvement.
