The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has replaced over 5000 card readers that got burnt at its Akure office last month.
INEC Chairman Prof Mammud Yakubu, announced this in Akure today in a chat with newsmen during his three days working visit to the state.
He noted that the card readers have been configured ahead of the governorship election.
He said: “We have already recovered some smart card readers. We unfortunately lost over 5000 smart card readers to the fire incident. We have however recovered by getting requisite number of smart card readers from neighbouring Oyo state.
“They have already been delivered to Ondo state and that have been charged and configured and ready for the election on October 10 governorship election in the state.”
Yakubu said INEC would organise an interaction session with all stakeholders in the election including traditional rulers in the state to ensure the success of the election.
