Card Reader Machine Can Never Be Compromised - INEC.



The Independent National Electoral Committee has stated that it is not possible for anyone to use the identification number on Permanent Voters' Card (PVCs) to compromise the smart card readers on the general elections day.

The chairman of INEC Yakubu Mahmood, stated this at a forum tagged, “Women National Dialogue with INEC Chairman”, organised by European Centre for Electoral Support (ECES) with INEC yesterday, Wednesday 6th of feburary 2019, in Abuja.

The Chairman said this in response to allegations that some party agents were collecting PVCs identification numbers in exchange for money.

He continued saying: there was no way any individual could compromise the integrity of the process by knowing the voters identification number of the electorate.

He said: “No one should believe that somehow they can induce the voters and copy their voter identification numbers to comprise the smart card readers and therefore compromise the election.

 “I want to assure you and other Nigerians that nothing like that can happen on Election Day,” the chairman said.

He also made a call to all Nigerians registered and who were yet to pick their PVCs to do on or before Friday.

“The commission does not provide life insurance to those who observe elections.

He said the commission plans to engage over a million ad-hoc staff for the general election.

He said INEC always recognise those who have served well by granting them automatic employment after the elections.
