He made this statement on Tuesday, in Abuja, said no third parties are involved in the configuration of card readers.

Yakubu said, “I want to assure the person who asked the question and assure the nation that no third parties are involved in the configuration of smart card readers of the Commission.

“The dispatching, white-listing, installation, upgrading of software, the configuration of smart card readers are done entirely only by the officials of the Commission.

This is entirely done only by the Commission’s IT under the supervision at the state level of HODs ICT or some official from headquarters of the Commission so there is no way any an outsider can partake in the configuration of smart card readers.”

“So, there is no way any an outsider can be involved in the configuration of our smart card readers.

Therefore, “It is not true that anybody is involved in the configuration of the smart card readers in any way.
