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.
