The Honourable Sergius Ogun, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says INEC is ready to work, but because we're in a hurry, we didn't interrogate certain things.
He said this in an interview with the Sunday Sun: "The INEC issue is something that should be addressed holistically. On paper, they were ready to work. But I also think that because we were in a hurry to see the outcome of a good election, we didn’t interrogate certain things.
According to him, if you cast your mind back to 2015, Attahiru Jega had the card readers. We had the likes of Mike Igini. They had gone to Ghana and Kenya and spoke about the card reader. How it would work magic and all. Even though PDP approved the thing, towards the end they were kicking against it. This is where I am going.
He further stated, "Jega ran the Ekiti and Osun elections; he could have tried that card reader. I guess because he wasn’t sure, they didn’t use the card reader. People even suggested, "Why don’t we use the card reader in this off-season election?" He didn’t. He came to the general elections using a device that you had not used before. The sitting President then went to his polling unit; three times, he couldn’t vote. It was the fourth time he was able to vote."
What's your take on this, dear esteemed readers?
