Election results from Lagos, the Nigerian financial capital, show that only one in six registered voters cast their votes in Saturday’s presidential elections.
That’s just 18.3% of the eligible voters.
Only six million people registered to vote and just over one million votes were cast. That’s in a city where, estimates say, the population is just over 20 million.
The south-western state has historically had a low voter turnout despite having the second largest number of registered voters in the country. There were 300,000 more votes cast in the state in 2015.
