STILL IN SEARCH OF 63 CARD READERS IN BAYELSA – INEC

Nigeria’s electoral body, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said it is in search of about 63 card readers machines used during the presidential and National Assembly elections in Bayelsa State.

INEC’s head of voters’ education and publicity department, Wilfred Ifogah, made the disclosure in Yenogoa. He said we have lost about 63 card reader machines during the last exercise.

The REC has issued a statement that those involved should return it to a point where it will get to INEC on or before Wednesday without being victimized. He stated the card reader machines were missing at  Brass, Sagbama, Southern-Ijaw, Nembe and Yenagoa local government areas.

Ifogah explained that the smart card reader machines used by its ad-hoc staff during the elections were not returned to the commission after use. However, he appealed to persons in possession of smart card readers to return them to the INEC office latest Wednesday, 6 March.
