So yesterday, I read this article shared by our egbon @Olusegunverdict and I registered my personal opinion as a Nigerian.
Today, I hope to compile everything I said in a thread for easy accessibility.
#MyRebuttalToHisVerdict issa thread๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡leggooo๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿ•บ
This may take a little time, the reason is simply because I might have to be away from my PC once in a while to attend to some network issues (Na that one dey feed my family for now๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ).
But as much as I can update this thread, I will be quick to do so #MyRebuttalToHisVerdict
No, any view to any article or thread by anybody is not personal & that does not reduce the regards we have for those we look up to.
Just that during election season like this, we must all come to a conclusion that the best of men, are still men at their best. We can disagree!

Things I learnt while at The Electoral Institute yesterday:
1. That report about @MBuhari getting 75% of his votes in 2015 from areas where card readers were not used did not come from @inecnigeria or its data.
2. INEC will use #PVC #CardReaders in all the 2019 elections.
3. INEC does NOT need the #ElectoralBill to be enacted to be able to use #PVC #CardReaders. It has been using #CardReaders consistently since 2015 and intends to use them in 2019. If it hadn't already planned to, two months to the election would be far too late to start planning!
4. INEC has stopped the use of 'incident report' to justify non-use of #CardReader for voter identification.
5. These safeguards are why some now resort to #votebuying.
6. Slow/late funding issues will not stop the 2019 polls, just as they didn't stop the 2015 polls.
