BBC World Service: “people say they won’t come and vote due to insecurity”

Tomorrow, Nigerians will go to the polls to vote for their next President.

On Our Radar reporters, Glaad Amadi and Robert Nitabai Desmond speak to the BBC World Service about the atmosphere in their communities the day before election day.


Glaad Amadi, in the state capital Port Harcourt, describes the atmosphere as tense, expressing concern that recent shootings in the regions may put people off from voting.


The mood in other parts of the region, however, is more optimistic. In Bayelsa state, where incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan was born, Robert Nitabai Desmond describes an atmosphere of excitement before polling day.
