#NigeriaDecides2019: Magboro Youths Choose Football Over Election
Another set of street football players were seen at the Gas Line area of Magboro community and they were mostly young adults of voting age.
Bounce News asked why they were not at their polling units to vote. They said they weren't in a hurry.
They expressed displeasure that only one polling unit has been made available for the entire Magboro community whose population is estimated to be about 20,000.
For them, they would rather spend the early hours having fun and later go to the polling unit when the crowd would have reduced.
When reminded that the exercise would end at 2pm, they argued that this will be totally impossible in Magboro.

It was like a carnival when we visited the polling unit situated at the Magboro Community High School.
But for many of the residents present, this can be still be said to be a low turn out, considering the fact that this is the only PU for the entire community.
INEC officials were not available to comment as they were busy battling with the pressure of impatient voters.
A landlord however told Bounce News that this single polling unit is the usual practice during federal polls as INEC usually opens up more polling units during the state elections.
As at 9:30am, voting is yet to start in Magboro.
