From Terfa Naswem
During the Presidential and National Assembly elections that took place on March 28, 2015, there were numerous situations of Card Readers failure and as a result, the elections could not hold on time and in some areas ended on Sunday March 29 as Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had to resort to manual accreditation. Dadin Kowa and the entire Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State were not exempted from this situation.
The situation is entirely different today as all the Card Readers in the seven (7) Polling Units under my watch in Dadin Kowa area of Jos South were all working perfectly as accreditations of voters were done without any failure of Card Reader recorded.
One of the accredited voters who gave his name as Musa said that he is very happy that INEC has identified and fixed the problem the Card Readers had during the Presidential and National Assembly elections.
He said that if the usage of Card Readers continues in subsequent elections, it will seriously reduce the level of rigging.
The contacts from other polling Units in Bukuru market, Bukuru, express, Bukuru low-cost, Old Airport Junction, Anglo Jos, Rayfield, New Abuja, Kangang, Rantya and Zaramanganda all in Jos South indicate Ninety percent (90%) success in the Card reader accreditations as many voters wait patiently to cast their which will commence by 1:30pm according to the INEC staff at the polling units.
