0

The Independent Na­tional Electoral Commis­sion (INEC) on Tuesday ex­pressed satisfaction with the outcome of last Saturday’s field testing of the Smart Card Readers (SCRs), and declared that there is no going back on its re­solve to use the technology for the coming polls.

The Chief Press Secretary to the commission’s Chairman, Mr Kayode Idowu, made this disclo­sure in a statement issued by him in Abuja.

Idowu explained that after re­viewing the conduct of the mock accreditation on Monday, the com­mission was satisfied that the objective of using it to verify Per­manent Voter Cards (PVCs) pre­sented by voters at polling units and ensure that they were genu­ine was achieved “100 per cent”.
