RECONFIGURATION OF CARD READERS TO SUIT NEW ELECTION DAY ~ INEC REVIEWS


The INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, has reviewed that the card readers were reconfigured to the new election date to make them impossible to be used illegally. He made this statement on Wednesday.


He said, “They are configured to specific polling units and only open for use at 8.am on the election day; they will automatically shut down by 10 pm in order to forestall any illegal use before the appointed time for elections,” he said.

He also added that the electoral body had made progress on logistics. He reviewed that the deployment of materials in all states across the country and the federal capital territory (FCT) had been completed.

Moreso, he listed 10 states that have already begun the movement of the materials to local governments while other states would do so and finish on Thursday.

The Listed States include: 
Adamawa,
Anambra,
