Adamu muazu Adamu Mu’azu

Adamu Mu’azu, the National Chairman of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, stated that the part of the technical issues encountered with card readers during the accreditation is acceptable.
PDP chairman, who was accredited at his hometown Boto, said there is no perfection in machines as only Almighty God can be perfect.

He denied calls for the nullification of the use of card reader machines for the accreditation of electors.

Mu’azu said: “I cannot arbitrarily call for the cancellation of the usage of the Card Readers and the Permanent Voter Cards. I know professor Jega to be a successful and courageous intellectual and so far he has done very well.”
Likewise, the member representing Dass/Bogoro/Tafawa Balewa constituency in the House of Represenatives, Yakubu Dogara, said the performance of the card reader and the permanent voter cards far surpass their technical challenges.
On his turn, Ali Wakili, the Bauchi South senatorial district aspirant of the All Progressive Congress, who was with success accredited at the Kofa Pada polling unit in Bauchi state, also said the problems encountered were acceptable.
Suleiman Bogoro, the executive secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund, on his part, said the use of the card reader would help in handling with the problem of rigging and multiple registration as it used to be in the past.
Meanwhile, three card readers failed to read biometrics of the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife Dame Patience.
The chairman of the electoral body Prof Jega while commenting the situation stated that it was was a national embarrassment.
