Abubakar spoke with reporters on Saturday, March 18, after he cast his vote at polling unit 012, Ajiya ward, Yola north LGA of Adamawa state.
The former vice president expressed dismay over the reported low voter turnout in the state.
Atiku also said he is not confident that the electoral body will transmit results electronically from polling units.
“It is still below expectations,” the former vice-president said.
“Honestly, INEC is already a discredited organization, let’s hope they will improve on their past performance.
“I’m not quite hopeful (that results will be transmitted). I have not seen measures they have taken to improve their past performances.”
