PDP demands test-run of card readers, others

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, has said the use of Electronic Management Tool to be used for the 2015 elections is welcome but that the country is not ready to be used as a guinea pig.
He said the Independent National Electoral Commission must ensure a successful test-run before approving it for use in the elections.

Mu’azu said, “What is happening today in INEC has been highlighted to them via letters from our party to his office on so many issues including the fraud of PVC we anticipated, including the manipulation. We all said this in writing to INEC.
“It is because we are the ruling party, we don’t want to be unruly because if we were the opposition, we would make a lot of noise and say a lot of things.”
“In their own sense of judgment, how does Professor (Attahiru) Jega, who is the leader of INEC, exonerate himself from disenfranchising 23 million Nigerians and telling the world that he is ready for elections; and we are saying that he is not ready, 23 million out of the 68 million registered voters, by his personal submission in the Council of State that was held last week to review the preparedness or otherwise of INEC to conduct the election. Twenty three million PVCs were either produced and not distributed or not produced at all.
