SEVERAL RIVERS YOUTHS PREFERRED TO STAY AT HOME INSTEAD OF VOTING


Some youths in Port Harcourt, Rivers, took to football on Saturday in defiance to Police order on banning such activities due to local government polls holding on across the state.


The youths, most of who are above 18 years, converted some major streets in the city into football pitches and engaged in the game while the election was going on.
Some of them told News Agency of Nigeria that whether they voted or not, the winners had already been selected.
One of them, who decline to identify himself, said “this election is just for formality; the only party that will win landslide is PDP, so, why bother going to vote.
”We want to use this opportunity to do our own exercise since the roads are fairly free of vehicles.”
Others just stayed indoor and increased the traffic on Social media, keeping their voters cards for identification purposes only.
It was observed that restriction on movement order during the period of the election was also violated by some commercial motorcyclists, who operated freely, doing brisk business.
At Oyigbo, one motorcyclist, who pleaded anonymity, told NAN that he took the risk of defying the order in order to make money for his family
