The Election Evidence Nigeria Project (EEP), an initiative of independent researchers working on Nigerian elections, has provided major reasons for voter apathy in the country.
During a press briefing in Abuja on Tuesday, a member of the initiative, Suleiman Suleiman provided an analysis of the elections, acknowledging issues but affirming their overall credibility.
The researchers claim Nigeria ought to be concerned over the worsening voter apathy in the country, noting that while voter registration has been growing since 1999, the number of voters who turn out to vote during the elections continues to decline.
According to the independent researcher, the causes of voter apathy include factors such as perceived electoral quality, security concerns, electoral violence, governance issues, voter cynicism, and the broader political culture and behaviour.
He lamented that various areas of evidence about improving elections in Nigeria are often ignored or underplayed, making many Nigerians believe that the elections are getting worse in Nigeria, which is not the case.
