Residents Flood Kaduna ATMs Seeking Travelling Funds Hours To Election

The residents of Kaduna state have continued to flood Automated Teller Machines in the metropolis and its environs, less than 24 hours to the general elections.

Customers waiting to withdraw money lamented that they had waited for days repeatedly without a dime being dispensed to them.

Many said they needed the money to travel to their various villages where they registered to vote and where their polling units are located before the election day.

Speaking to DAILY POST at an ATM queue, Joseph Musa said he lives in Kaduna but his polling unit is in Kafachan and that he needed the money to fund his trip to his polling unit location.

Mrs. Ruth Mahalo, another resident said her polling unit was in Kaduna but was transferred to Kachia where she had hoped to be during the election and now needs money for her trip home.

Many others still in the queue claimed they only need their transportation fares to get to various destinations before the Saturday election when there will not be any movement.

They also claimed that travelling has become very difficult as transporters refused to accept money transfers as they too cannot withdraw their monies from anywhere.
