The All Progressives Congress (APC) has demanded the use of card readers across the country for the extended Presidential and National

In a statement, in Lagos, Saturday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said using the card readers
where they have no hitches will enhance the integrity of the process.

”In accordance with the directive from INEC, it is only in areas where the card readers fail to work that the electoral officials can
resort to manual voting. Even then, the officials must ensure that whoever presents any PVC is the genuine owner of the card,” it said.

APC also demanded that the results of all the elections that were concluded on Saturday be made ready, and that all party agents must
have a copy of the results, ahead of the conduct of Sunday’s elections

The party listed the parts of Lagos State where the elections will be held on Sunday as Alimosho (30 polling units (PUs) because no
elections were held in the area on Saturday), Shomolu (15 PUs, no election), Eti Osa (3 PUs), Kosofe ward 2 (57 PUs) as well as
Oshodi/Isolo (5 PUs), and appealed to all APC members and supporters to be vigilant during the voting.
