Journalists were on Wednesday kept for over thirty minutes as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) struggled to showcase the good working condition of its card readers, which have been deployed for the elections.
The commission had invited journalists to showcase its preparedness for the election.
However, the exercise failed as the card reading machine could not work for over 30 minutes, a situation that left the audience embarrassed.
Biafra 24 reports that the PVC of one of the journalists was inserted, after which that of a member of the Civil Society Organization was equally tried, but both failed the test.
Meanwhile, the Resident Electoral Commissioner of INEC in Enugu State, Professor Chukwuemeka Onukaogu, had disclosed that the commission had so far distributed 77 percent of the Permanent
Voters’ Cards, (PVC) in the State.
Onukaogu said his target was to distribute at-least 80 percent of the cards before the election.
