The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has promised Nigerians that Card Readers will be used during the April 11 elections.
In a statement written and signed yesterday by its Secretary, Mrs. Augusta Ogakwu, the commission gave the assurance to Nigerians.
The statement reads: “The provision of the Guidelines for the conduct of the 2015 General Elections which outlined what is to be done if a card reader fails and cannot be replaced by the Commission within a specified time frame (i.e. Reschedule the election to the next day) will be enforced.
“The relaxation of the Guidelines on the 28th March 2015 was with respect to the Presidential and National Assembly elections held on that date.
“The commission has reviewed the operation of the Card Reader in the 28th March Elections, identified the challenges and has taken adequate measures to address them.”
