Voter apathy has been identified as a possible after effect of the election postponement.

But some Nigerians are making effort to see that voters turn out to en-mass at the polls.

People, who traveled on Friday to different locations to participate in the election, woke up in the morning disappointed after they heard that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had shifted the election by one week.  

Some of them have returned to their places of residence, but a fraction of them have said they would not embark on another journey for the purpose of the election.

Worst hit are some ad-hoc staff of INEC that are part of the compulsory youth service scheme. 

They have lost money and are not willing to engage more funds in the quest to exercise their civic rights.

To aid their journey to their destinations, people are making buses available that could convey people to different states.

One of the individuals taking up this responsibility is Reno Omokri, a former aide to a former President, Goodluck Jonathan. 

On his Twitter page, Mr Omokri, who is a critic of the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, said: "If you want to ride my free , Please email info@busesfordemocracy.org.

"Include your destination in subject.

"Buses leave Thursday, return Sunday They are: *Free to voters travelling for purpose of voting* IRRESPECTIVE of who they vote for".

Mr Omokri has received accolades from Nigerians for his benevolence.
