 Card Readers Destroyed As Fire Guts Ondo INEC Head Office

Barely a month to the Ondo State gubernatorial election, 5,141 card readers meant for the Ondo State governorship election have been destroyed in a fire.

The card readers got destroyed at the Akure Office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday, September 10, 2020.

The fire ravaged a large container housing smart card readers before firefighters could do anything about it, arriving nearly two hours after the outbreak started.

 According to the Chairman of INEC’s Information and Voter Education Committee, Mr Festus Okoye, the destruction of the card readers will not affect the election, scheduled for October 10, 2020.
