However, there is no assurance that another card reader will be brought by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
No use of incidence form has been filled to that effect. His wife’s PVC could also not be verified by the card reader.

Everyone else has been verified so far and voting is ongoing
Meanwhile, a large turnout of voters still in a long queue in Eleka’s unit.There was a long pause as electoral officers tried unsuccessfully to verify him. Voting resumed after he stepped out of the ward.
