INEC to Use Card Reader for April 11 Elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission is to deploy Card Readers for the April 11, 2015 Elections.
In a statement issued and signed by the Secretary to the Commission, Mrs Augusta C. Ogakwu, the Commission said 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 Commission said, the relaxation of the Guideline on 28th March 2015 was only with respect to the Presidential and National Assembly elections held on that date.

The Commission said it had reviewed the operation of the Card Reader in the 28th March Elections, had identified the challenges and had taken adequate measures to address them.
