Anambra Decides: Faulty Card Reader Delays APGA Candidate, Soludo

Anambra Decides: Faulty Card Reader Delays APGA Candidate, Soludo (Updated: 7 months ago)


According to The PUNCH, some voters at Isuofia Ward 13, polling unit 002 in Anambra State have protested against the malfunctioning of INEC card reader deployed to the unit.

The PUNCH reportS that no single voter has been accreditated to vote at the unit since morning.

The candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Professor Chukwuma Soludo is yet to vote because of the non-working of the card reader machine.

At Isuofia polling unit 001, voting was reported to have commenced at about 9:21 am but at about 10:30 am when our correspondent got to the Centre only about 15 voters have cast their ballots.

It was observed that residents came out in their numbers to exercise their franchise but INEC machines were either not working at all or working so slowly.

At Isuofia polling unit 005, voters equally lament that since INEC polling officials started by 9:12 am only 20 voters were able to cast their ballots as of 11:00 am dot when our correspondent visited the polling unit.

A visually-impaired old man told our correspondent that he was dissatisfied that despite INEC promises for being ready for this election what is happening at the polling unit, unfortunately, is to the contrary. 

The man who gave his name as Mr Udoka Okafor, said, “I have been here since 9:30 am but I have not been able to cast my vote. The INEC voting machine couldn’t read my fingerprint but I must exercise my franchise.”
