Labour Party’s Delta State’s governorship candidate, Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru, has demanded that the Independent National Electoral Commission should do a test run of the card readers to be used in the general elections. He made the demand at a press conference he called in Asaba on Monday to react to the postponement of the general elections to March 28 and April 11. The said there would be grave implications should the card readers fail on election day and INEC decides to fall back on a Plan B that has not even been made known.
“If INEC does not do a pre-trial test of the card readers then we are taking a grave risk on election day. The sensible thing to do is to test the machines so that the people that will use then on election day will be satisfied that the machines will run well,” he said.
I totally agree with him on this!
