The Independent National Electoral Commission has selected two states in each of the six geo-political zones across the country to test run its card readers.


The exercise will start on Saturday March 7, 2015.


Addressing stakeholders at the Kano State INEC headquarters on Thursday, the state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Alhaji Mukaila Abdullahi, noted that 54 card readers would be put to test during the mock poll, scheduled to hold at Danmaliki ward in Kumbotso Local Government Area between 8am to 1pm.


Abdullahi said the proposed Saturday field test would afford the commission the opportunity to practically demonstrate the workability of the machines for voter accreditation process, using the permanent voter cards.

He added, "Arrangement has been concluded for the field test in Danmaliki ward in Kumbotso Local Government, a semi-urban area. The commission will make use of 27,127 registered voters in the ward and as far as personnel is concerned, we will make use of one SPO, 32 PO and 184 APO for the exercise.


"We have also arranged for 162 security personal, three of which will man each polling unit. Each polling unit will have one card reader and the objective is to test the workability and durability of the machines.


"Also, the process will enable INEC to allay the fears of the voting public on the use of the card reader in this month's general elections and identify any possible challenge during the process."

The REC said Kano had attained 94 per cent success in the PVC collection while its had equally taken delivery of 11,258 card readers in Kano.
