The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said the 5000 card readers lost in the fire incident at its office in Akure, the Ondo State capital, have been replaced.
The INEC boss said he was in the state to assess the level of preparedness for the October 10 election in the state.
Yakubu said the electoral body would conduct credible and acceptable poll as it did in Edo State last Saturday.
He said the card readers have been configured ahead of the governorship election.
“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,” he said.
“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.”
