For instance, in most of the polling stations, voters used tables of food vendors and hawkers to tumb print their ballot papers as there were no provision by the Adamawa State Independent Electoral Commission, ADSIEC.

At the Gwadabawa polling booth 004, election officials confirmed that only 32 voters out of the 978 registered voters turned to exercise their franchise.

However, some election observers interviewed described the turnout and general conduct of the exercise as credible and impressive.
