The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that no voter will be allowed to vote without his card being recognised by the Smart Card Reader in the Nov. 16 elections in Bayelsa and Kogi.
Prof. James Apam, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), disclosed this to NAN on the sidelines of a one-day Training on Election Duties, organised by Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) for its Staff at Kogi Sector Command Headquarters in Lokoja.
Speaking on behalf of Apam, Mr Olugbenga Ajayi, a staff officer of the commission, warned that no person would be allowed to vote without being accredited using the card reader.
“We keep learning everyday, and we want to obey what we have said as electoral umpire; if card reader cannot identify you, you cannot vote.
“It is either card reader or no voting in Kogi and Bayelsa elections; anything apart from the use of card reader for accreditation and voting will be disqualified.
“No manual accreditation would be allowed; it is either card reader or no voting,” he added.
