Y so much fuss about card reader refusing the president's pvc. The disgrace is a national one because it didn't work in several places, JEGA, and not only because it failed @ Jona n P-baby's pollong unit.

JEGA is a BIG fool to have said the card may have been damaged. So all the millions of cards rejected by the fake card reader was damaged? This man called Jega should be questioned. I guess he sent all the not doing well card readers to the south and south west to disenfranchise pro Jonathan/PDP. GEJ all the way!!!

Card readers were apparently failing often at a polling booth near an Accenture staff's home. And the guy couldn't understand why...cos the readers were all new. So he approached the INEC woman. Inspected the reader. Only to find the protective film on the lense of the reader had not been removed. After a protracted argument he convinced the woman to remove it. The reader not only read the prior rejected cards, it was reading with even faster response time. Please share n let's reclaim Naija together. Mods do the needful

ColdFlame said...

National embarrassment? I don't think so!!
I believe what happened was a deliberate attempt at buttressing the long held PDP narrative that card readers should not be used at all.
Overzealous PDP apparatchiks simply replaced the first couple's cards with unreadable dummies just for the premium negative publicity.
Either that or the gods are so incensed with Jonathan (for failing us all so badly) that they chose to embarrass him with the whole world watching.

You are senseless child, it is nt the president's duty, it is that of Jega to make sure voters card right. Do you blame your VC in school for every crisis that the school experience.

Read your input again. It lacks the basic intellect a human should have. So all the cards that failed are cloned. Or just that of the President?
