He specifically commended the card reader, saying it was very effective.

Another PDP agent, Anele Wachukwu, who alleged the use of fake materials in Ward 16, Unit 17 caused voters to stop voting, said that his party later directed that they should allow the election to go on.

He stated that the election was credible.
