The Independent National Electoral Commission on Thursday said it would deploy no fewer than 6200  card readers in the November 18 poll in Anambra State.

It said that the machines would be in perfect condition.

The commission’s Director, Voter Education and Publicity , Oluwole Uzzi, gave the assurance  during a voter education meeting held in Awka, Anambra state.

He  said about 5,000 card reader machines had  been tested from the 6,200 anticipated for the election.

He added that  the INEC had recorded huge successes in the use of the machine since it was introduced, and assured of a continued improvement in subsequent elections to guarantee more efficiency.

He said,”We will utilise the best card reader machines, not just for the Anambra election, but in subsequent elections, all to make sure that the exercise is not only free and fair, but credible and acceptable to all.”
