The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it has replaced the over 5000 card readers destroyed by fire at its Akure office last month.

The Commission’s Chairman, Prof Mammud Yakubu, disclosed this in a chat with newsmen on Wednesday in Akure during his three days working visit to Ondo State.

Prof Yakubu said he was in Ondo State to have on the spot assessment to ascertain the level of readiness for the commission as they prepare for the October 10 governorship election.

The INEC boss said the electoral body would conduct credible and acceptable election as it did in Edo State last Saturday.

He said the replaced card readers have been configured ahead of the governorship election.

Prof Yakubu said:  “We have already recovered some smart card readers. We unfortunately lost over 5000 smart card readers to the fire incident. We have however recovered by getting requisite number of smart card readers from neighbouring Oyo state.

“They have already been delivered to Ondo state and that have been charged and configured and ready for the election on October 10 governorship election in the state.”

INEC says would be organizing an interaction session with all stakeholders to ensure a successful election.
